    Japan has limits on immigration for many years.  This small country does not have enough room for unchecked immigration. To some observers, it's xenophobia.  In recent years however, there is news that Japan workforce is rapidly aging so strict enforcement on immigration was relaxed as a means of encouraging young workers from abroad.

    The media and political commentators, media activists a.ka journalists only focus on exaggerating racism in western nations.. Their narrative is the same in all western european nations, and north america. It's meant to polarize and divide, of course.. All it does tho is push normal people more and more towards the people that the media claims to be fighting against. 

    Hell, blacks in New York could assassinate hebrew people 24/7 and they wouldn't cover it much and instead focus on the question, is Trump to blame? And something about white nationalism and other extremist issues to mud the waters. 

    Arabs in Libya have a slave trade consisting mostly of Africans, this is also something unworthy of the news. So it should be obvious why no one cares about / talks about this in the media at least. and in politics.

    Because there aren't many immigrants in Japan (because they haven't needed them until relatively recently) to experience the xenophobia and it is more subtle than it is in Western countries because of Japanese politeness.

    Because Japan limits ALL immigration, not just brown immigration. See how that works? If you do it the same for everyone, that's fine. Our current admin. institutes policies that disproportionately discourages non white immigration.

    The United States is a nation of immigrants so the xenophobic hypocrites in the US forget how their families got to be American Citizens. We also depend on immigrant labor for many industries so the xenophobic hypocrites are also short sighted. Lastly, the immigration hysteria focus on certain ethnic groups which demonstrate that the concerns are more about bigots avoiding "Brown people" and not real immigration policy.

    Japan is a nice place to visit and climb Mt. Fuji but I wouldn't want to live there.

    Haven't heard many Americans opposing immigration, in fact almost every politician whether R or D promote a robust immigration policy. We are held to a higher standard because we have championed diversity, fairness, freedom, etc.. Republicans just want it to be a process that Americans control to avoid a chaotic disruption to our society.

     

    The Japanese are not as much xenophobic as they are openly racist. They get a pass because they are a hegemonic society with no expectations of diversity. There government represents one race and one nation.
