"Whitening" is a very very important factor in Japanese cosmetics. If this were attacked by BLM activists, all Japanese cosmetics makers would go bankrupt. ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ‘
1/3 FYI: The literary work of the early 11th century"The Tale of Genji #ๆบๆฐ็‰ฉ่ชž" (the world's first feature-length novel), which represents the Heian period, which established JAPANESQUE away from the influence of ancient China, for example
2/3 Lady Murasaki wrote that "white and beautifully transparent skin". In short, you can see the literary expression that praised the white skin like no other in the world. #JapaneseTraditions
3/3 At that time, Japanese aristocratic women wore Junihitoe #ๅไบŒๅ˜ that layered many beautiful clothes, and did makeup that emphasizes the whiteness of the skin by putting the face white on long black hair.
In another words, it is one of the Japanese traditions what praise the white and transparent.

@la_biografia About Japanโ€™s economy system: Very roughly speaking, IMHO Japan was close to capitalism-based, sort of NatSoc until 1985. And at that time, the generation that was the foundation as adult of the Imperial Japan, who were born in the 1920s, was still fine.

@la_biografia 1/4 Of course, the drama is fiction, and gimmicks that attract viewers are used. However, this work was almost 'miraculously' monumental one that made the world of the forgotten townspeople of Tokyo on TV other than NHK.
@la_biografia 2/4 And it's currently impossible to reproduce the drama about 50 years ago (people born in the 1920s who knew Japan before losing the war were involved in the production). No one escapes the occupier's eyes and inserts a Japanese element.
@la_biografia 3/4 This country is no longer Japan. From a traditional point of view, you will be disappointed when you see the actual Japan. The Japanese spoken by people today is broken Japanese.

โถ/4 Japan was inhabited 40,000 years ago. The people who lived before the so-called Jomon people are known as the 'Minatogawa people'. However, due to the acidic nature of the Japanese soil, it's difficult for bones to be preserved, and so controversy continues.
โท/4 The post-WW2 scholars are basically quite left-leaning, and also archaeology tends to portray the influence of mainland China and Korea as being very significant. In recent years,
โธ/4 however, it has become clear that even rice cultivation was not influenced by Korea, but that the Jomon people began to do it independently in Japan.

1/5 East Asia is not one. Drawing as if it were one is a scenario for spreading Pan-Asianism (also known as Eurasianism).
2/5 Historically, large slaughters had been repeated in mainland China since ancient times, resulting in repeated ethnic annihilation.
3/5 Since Japan was, as it were, "Galapagos Islands in Pacific Ocean" away from the continent, multiple haplotypes that disappeared on the continent remain in now Japan because they accepted multiple ethnic groups who fled the continent, and had habitat segregation each other.

@la_biografia 1/5 Japan has no formal diplomatic relations with North Korea. This fact is unimaginable in a country where diplomatic relations with its neighbours are a matter of course. I don't know exactly what North Korea is thinking either. #CryptoKoreans
@la_biografia 2/5 Also, not only Japanese politics and business, but society as a whole is seriously infiltrated by #CryptoKoreans (about which you will find a surprisingly serious situation if you search for #ๅœจๆ—ฅ in Japanese, e.g.ใ€€Most Japanese people don't tweet about it in English).
