Interview with Uchināguchi activist FIJA Bairon at Japan Focus, complete with introduction to the Ryūkyūan language situation in general. Great reading. One-question/one-answer summary:
Japan is not a country with one culture, one nation, one language then?
It’s not and from now on also the Japanese will have to accept this. . .
Does everyone else remember Aso’s “一文化、 一文明、一民族、一言語” speech in late 2005?
