Chaga Shoten Nishijin Ten

H

ailing from Miyazaki City, this dynamic noodle shop opened their first shop in Fukuoka this June in Nishijin. The owner hopes this location, his fourth in Kyushu, will blow a new wind through Fukuoka’s tonkotsu-dominated ramen scene. You’re spoilt for choice with nine varieties of ramen and six different tsukemen “dipping noodle“ dishes to choose from. Great for a hot summer night where you can’t face a boiling hot ramen — tsukemen is eaten by dipping cold noodles in warm, tasty broth. The light and

T

he restaurant staff had been solicitous and the food top-notch. It was decided that we would take a photo of our meal there with David, our Caucasian friend. "Shashin, ok?" David turned to the bemused patrons at the next table. A young Japanese man stepped up to take the camera. We smiled, said “chee-zu!”, and were returning to our seats when — "Iidesuka?" The young man who had taken our photograph gestured towards David, smiling. “You want to take a photo with us?” David asked. “No,” the young man replied. “Onry you” – pointing at David. "With famiry." From behind him, a lady and a little girl emerged. The man turned away from

David to us. "One of you," he ordered politely. "You help take photo." Afterwards, David did his best to stifle his laughter. "I mean, I'm really something to look at," he winked. "It's not necessarily the race thing, mates." To be fair, David is dishy - a cross between Robin van Persie and an American fratboy - but the Japanese young man would probably not have asked an Asian ikemen for a photograph. This may sound cynical, but is simply the culmination of our experience in Japan. As ethnic Chinese Singaporeans who are often mistaken for natives here, we are resigned to being left out of Japanese photographs, much as we have learned to be amused when locals praise David’s awkward Japanese over our JLPT-tested fluency; when

English lesson recruiters ignore us in favour of our American friends; when television reporters stop us in the street but direct their questions only to our European companions. For most Westerners, Japan is the perfect getaway. Its culture could not be more foreign, but its modern and civilised society allows them to feel right at home. Add to this the endless Japanese fascination with Caucasian faces, and it becomes clear why Japan is one of the most popular destinations for Westerns seeking an exotic adventure. They might be lost and lost in translation, but with the creature comforts Japan hides amidst its ninjas and otakus, more often than not these travellers have every faith that they will “find themselves” in the land of the rising sun. But what if a foreigner looks no different from the Japanese? What if the foreigner is of Asian descent, or even from one of the many neighbours that Japan has invaded before? Despite sharing kindred looks, cultural histories and even languages, Asians

in Japan know they should expect less “yokoso!” than “yo, why are you still here?” For them, there is no feeling of being extraordinary; only of being extraneous. But maybe it makes sense that the newcomers who feel the most alienated in Japan are the ones who are, geographically and historically, closest to it. After all, familiarity breeds contempt; towards the other Asians who sojourn in their country, the Japanese likely feel less enthusiastic interest than economic rivalry, residual guilt, and a reminder of their less sophisticated past. Indeed, not all Asians behave perfectly in Japan either. The guy jabbering on his phone in the bus and the family attempting to jump the supermarket queue are, in our experience, more likely to be Asian gaijin than Japanese – stereotypes that have no doubt added to the Japanese antipathy towards other Asians. The upshot of all this is that Asian interlopers in Japan have a higher threshold to cross to find favour with the Japanese than do Western ones, who simply have

to look different and say a charmingly accented "konnichiwa". Still, we believe there is a much higher upside that awaits the Asian gaijin. An overtly foreign face is always a fun novelty, but only someone who looks Japanese can truly ever fit in. So an Asian foreigner, by learning the local ways and language in earnest, will in time gain not just the goodwill of the Japanese, but also their acceptance in a way that will never be open to a Westerner. For a society as comfortable to live in as Japan, this is effort that might well prove worthwhile. Dodesho?

られることはまずないわ。語学学校の講師 にアメリカ人を優先的に選んだり、街頭イ ンタビューで見かけが欧米人っぽい人だけ にインタビューするのと同じ。  大半の欧米人にとってほぼ完璧な休暇場 所である日本のもつ独自の文化は、時とし て現代的で、上品な社会は欧米の自宅にい るかのような居心地の良さを与える。そし て日本人の “ザ・欧米人” に対する羨望が、 エキゾチックな冒険を探し求める欧米人に とって、日本が人気の観光地であることを 強固なものにしている。例え忍者やオタク の 狭 間 で 言 い た い こ と が 伝 わ ら な く て も、 結局は居心地がよくて何とかなる場所を求 めてるのだから。  しかし、似たような容姿や、文化や歴史、

言語をシェアしているにも関わらず、日本 にいるアジア人は外国人として特別扱いさ れるのでもない。そして、日本人に似てい るからといって日本人のように扱われるわ けでもない ...。  だからといってひねる必要はないけれど、 これから日本に来るアジア人が、日本社会 に感情的に引き裂かれたように感じたとし ても、それは似通っていて、過去を知る者 同士だからこそ、日本人は私たちのような アジア人に対して、興味よりも先に経済的 な競争心を掻き立てたり、以前の教養のな い社会を思い出したりするのかもしれない ことを知っておいてほしい。確かに、日本 に居るアジア人の全てが行儀が良いわけで はない、とアジア人の私すら感じるくらい

だから、私たちのような日本に住まうアジ ア人が、いかにも欧米人な彼らと同じよう に、日本人の好意を受けるには限界がある と思うのも分かる。けれど、それでも私た ちは、アジア人国外住居者に待ち受ける明 るい未来を期待して、諦めずに努力するべ きだと信じている。日本人にそっくりな “外 国人” で終わることなく、言語習得や日本 の習いに真摯に取り組んでいるアジア系の 外国人は、時間はかかるけど、日本の好意 を得るだけでなく、欧米人には決して開か れない『懐』へと受け入れられるんだから。 日本のように住み易い社会で、暮らしてい けるなら、充分に価値ある努力と時間だと 思うけど、ドーデショね?

FUKUOKA CITY BULLETIN SELECTED NEWS TOPICS BY FUKUOKA NOW FROM FUKUOKA CITY’S SHISEI DAYORI

◊ Foreign Residents to Receive Resident Register Code Numbers Foreign residents are now included in the Basic Resident Registers Network, or Juki-Net, as per the revised Basic Resident Registration Act. All foreign residents of Fukuoka have been sent a Resident Register Code Number on July 12. This 11-digit number is used to identify individuals in the nationwide Juki-Net. If you would like to receive a Juki-Net Card, please read the multilingual flyer enclosed with your notice.

◊ Fukuoka History Smartphone App

◊ Recycle Your Old Devices

In mid-July, Fukuoka City launched a smartphone app called "Fukuoka History Navi" that guides users on walking tours of the city's cultural assets. The first installment, "Medieval Hakata's Prosperity", starts at Hakata Station and takes users to Jotenji, Shofukuji and Tochoji Temples as well as Kushida Shrine and Hakatamachiya Furusatokan. The second installment will guide users around the Fukuoka Castle area, and the City plans to release new courses in the future. The free app can be downloaded for iPhone and Android.

The City uses collection boxes in local supermarkets and other spots to recycle the rare metals contained in small electronic devices. This August, the City will add boxes at ward office and four subway stations (Hakata, Fukuoka Airport, Nishijin and Meinohama) to boost its collection efforts. If you have any old cell phones, portable music players or other small devices, please drop them in one of the green collection boxes.
