Hafu Gathering - Interview video

Posted by Marcia

We were out filming in Yoyogi park this afternoon at a half Japanese hanami get together. We asked a number of hafus about their motivation behind joining hafu events as well the level of connection with fellow Hafus. We shall edit the filmed footage and make it available in both Japanese and English shortly.

Meanwhile please enjoy the following video which is about the image of Hafus held by people in Japan. It is a short video shot during the summer of 2009 in Harajuku:
