UN racism expert visiting Japan

The Japan Times Online reports that the U.N.’s expert on racism and discrimination will visit Japan for the first time this month. The Japanese government has invited Doudou Diene of Senegal to report on the situation of minorities and foreigners in Japanese society.

Foreigners in Japan are treated differently, partly because Japan has relatively few foreign residents. Hopefully the UN’s report will help make life easier for foreigners in Japan.
