Recently 22 year old Priyanka Yoshikawa won the title of Miss Japan 2016. Her title win has been in the news quite a bit as her father is Indian, so she is considered "hafu" or half Japanese. Critics complain that a "pure" Japanese should have won. This follows last year's Miss Universe pageant winner who was the first mixed-race person to win a major pageant in Japan. Only 3% of babies born in Japan every year are biracial.
A few years ago, we went to the screening of a film called Hafu, which illustrated the difficulties and prejudice biracial Japanese face. If you are interested you can find clips of it on YouTube.
