Photographer's Note

The Ainu are the indigenous people of Japan, living in Hokkaido, the furthest most island of the island chain. There aren't many Ainus left, but there are heritage parks you can visit to see traditional building, costumes, and dance of the Ainu.

Here is a man who works at one the villages. As you can see, his features are different from what people would consider Japanese.
