Tokyo Interlopers is all about giving underrepresented people a voice. We believe that by giving minority groups or marginalized people a chance to speak up and be heard, we can raise awareness on their plight and hopefully effect change in society. After all, we all have a story tell.

This site is a compendium of pictures and stories, personal accounts of foreigners (immigrant workers, trainees, international students, expats, visitors, etc.) and mixed-race or second- and third-generation Japanese people. We believe in diversity and an inclusive society, which is not about being similar, but living in harmony despite differences. If we open our hearts and minds to welcome individuals who are disproportionately disadvantaged or are often left behind, it will only benefit us all. Let’s celebrate human differences across gender, race, economic status, and physical and intellectual capabilities.
