Social History of White Leather in Japan

Mr. Katsushi and Prof. Yuko Nishimura created this video to publicize the historical and contemporary contributions of the Buraku minority to Japanese culture.

Burakumin (部落民)

The burakumin (部落 民?) Japan's outcast group consists of approximately 3 million individuals ethnically, linguistically, and racially indistinguishable from the other Japanese.

The discrimination of this social group is based mainly on occupational reasons, more specifically, on the work done by the ancestors of hundreds of years ago.
