I'm currently reading this book American Fuji by Sara Backer. It talks a lot about racism in Japan against Americans. It seems everywhere in this book the American person is being screamed at by school children. Of course they scream "GAIJIN!" or something of the sort. One of the major characters is a woman, who was fired from her university teaching job aparently for being an unmarried woman over the the age of 27. Although it is said in the book Shizuoka (where this takes place) is a very conservative city. I was just wondering what places aren't so conservative and all that stuff. I just wanna know everything about racism in Japan, it realy facinates me.
