[Documentary] ‘Black in Tokyo’

Although not about ‘Africans in China’ this interesting doco shows another perspective on ‘being black’ in Asia. Many of the African pioneers living in China in the 1990s ended up in Japan, btw. Interestingly, many of these ppl claim to be treated better in Japan than in China. Anyways, worth watching!

Black in Tokyo was created with the intention of exposing people around the world to the black foreign experience of living in a homogenous country. Directed by Nigerian-American artist Amarachi Nwosu, the film follows five subjects, with origins ranging from West Africa to the U.S., narrating the different cultural challenges and opportunities of living in Tokyo, Japan.
