   schema:description "Contributions from academics and grass-roots people combine in this unique work to describe the existing plurality in Japan, in order to start balancing the perspectives which currently exist in the non-Japanese literature about Japan. It challenges the myth of Japanese uniqueness by focussing on very common experiences that Japanese people share with people in other parts of the world. Above all, it seeks to counteract the common tendency to see complexity as a threat by illustrating the value of diversity and cultural plurality to society as a whole."@en ;
