This paper explains that the Japanese people, who are among the most nationalistic people of all, try hard to preserve their ethnic homogeneity, ensuring that the population of Japan remains dominated by the Japanese and that foreign nationals are a very small percentage of the population. The author evaluates Japan's immigration policies by focusing on its labor markets, rights protection, societal identities and border security. The paper concludes that globalization of Japan's industries causes an increasing demand for skilled workers;
however, currently, Japan's immigration policy is not open enough to welcome foreign workers and businesses as compared to the policies of
Singapore and Hong Kong, which leaves Japan behind in terms of economic globalization. The paper includes several quotations.

From the Paper:

"In terms of maximum period of stay for foreign workers, Japan currently grants a maximum of only three years; surprisingly too short for a worker who wants to establish a good future; and surprisingly too short as compared again to other more developed countries. In terms of the employment status of foreign workers, on the other hand, considering the claim of Japan on their strict policy on limiting, or even preventing, foreign unskilled workers, it is surprising that "entertainers" and "trainees" coming from neighboring Asian countries are categorized under skilled workers."
