TOKYO - The Tokyo Olympics were supposed to showcase Japan's growing ethnic diversity, but the Games have also dragged into the international spotlight a domestic debate about whether the country can be both multicultural and Japanese.

Japan's team is its biggest on record and most diverse, including nearly three dozen athletes of mixed parentage and reflecting a gradual but profound change in a still largely homogeneous country.

Among them are judo gold medallist Aaron Wolf https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sports/judo-japans-hamada-wolf-still-hunt-gold-2021-07-29, who has an American father; basketballer Rui Hachimura https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sports/japan-selects-basketball-player-hachimura-wrestler-susaki-flagbearers-2021-07-05, who carried the national flag in the opening ceremony and has a Beninese father, and tennis superstar Naomi Osaka https://www.reuters.com/lifestyle/sports/tennis-japans-osaka-out-tokyo-2020-third-round-2021-07-27, who lit the Olympic cauldron and has a Haitian father.

The selection of multicultural athletes to represent Japan at such moments - unthinkable a few decades ago - comes as organisers made "diversity and inclusion" an Olympic theme. But like many countries, Japan still has much to do.

"What has become clear at this Olympics is the government wanted to use mixed-race people to showcase that Japan has become a global country," said Lawrence Yoshitaka Shimoji of Ritsumeikan University, who wrote a book on mixed-race people.

"On the other hand, the government has not taken any measures to counter discrimination," he said, adding there was no legal protection for mixed-race people from bullying or hiring discrimination.

Shimoji pointed to negative comments on social media after Osaka lit the cauldron, where some said the honour should have gone to a "pure" Japanese.

There are a record 2.9 million foreigners living in Japan, 2% of the population. Roughly 2% of babies born annually have one non-Japanese parent, according to official statistics.

BULLYING AND ABUSE

Basketballer sisters Evelyn and Stephanie Mawuli, who were born and raised in Japan to Ghanaian parents, were bullied as children.

Evelyn, the elder of the two, recently told Gendai Business magazine she had sometimes fought back but eventually learned to forgive and found support in basketball.

"In the future the number of half-Japanese children and children born in Japan with different roots will increase," she told the magazine. "I want these children to see me. Even if they have a hard time they can change things by themselves."

Evelyn recently told reporters she had a "Japanese heart", giving her the confidence to represent the country.

Hachimura, a forward for the NBA's Washington Wizards, has spoken about racist messages he and his younger brother Allen receive.
