About Zainichi

The term “Zainichi” refers to the Koreans and their descendants who moved – or who were forced to move – to Japan during the period of colonial rule in Korea. Unlike many other migrant Korean communities, Zainichi communities can directly trace their origins to the history of Japanese colonization.
