Diaspora without Homeland

Sixty years on since the Korean residences first settled in post-colonial Japan, the contemporary Japanese perspective eventually seems to be accounting for the Koreans in a different light. A short appraisal of the present situation would infer that it would do considerable injustice to reality to insist on the relentless and recalcitrant nature of the Japanese dislike of Korea and Koreans. While the current indicators of social acceptance are derived from the substantial sway of Zainichi elements over the mainstream reel culture of Japan, the initial stages of Japanese exposure to Korean culture came by the way of interbreeding—the Japanese tourism boom to Korea in the 1960s was much characterized by sex-tourism—and via the culinary route. While the elders still consider the Korean nation as developing/poor, Japanese youths are more likely to evoke the manifest wealth of Seoul and the dynamic nature of Samsung.
