"All in all, this is a very good book, informed and well formed, with vivid descriptions of the varieties of social life. There is something to whet the appetites of sociological researchers of every major subfield here, especially given that it invites further inquiry and analysis at every turn. Multiculturalism in the New Japan is highly recommended both for Japan specialists and for anyone interested in transnational, comparative research involving Japan."  ·  Sociology

"...a valuable addition to the increasing literature on Japanese multiculturalism which has challenged the long-held homogeneous Japan thesis...A particular contribution of this ... book is to illuminate the ground-level process where hybridities emerge and group boundaries are redrawn in a particular local context...I greatly enjoyed reading [this book] from beginning to end. My undergraduate students who encountered it in their subject reading list also enjoyed it. I would recommend it highly for both undergraduate and graduate students studying Japanese society."  ·  Japan Studies

"This book importantly seeks out the meanings behind the nooks and crannies in which peoples from different cultures are juxtaposed within Japan. However the real work of living side by side, of respecting individual and cultural differences, of embracing diversity...remains a vital challenge to both Japan, as well as to scholars who stand poised to connect the dots of this critical and evolving picture. I recommend this volume as one further step toward that undertaking."  ·  Asia Pacific World

"...a very readable volume offering through its focus on the local a vivid picture of multiculturalism in Japan.  All articles are ethnographically grounded and it is here, and not in systematic and theoretically exhaustive treatment of the subject of multiculturalism."  ·  Zeitschrift für Ethnologie
