This paper analyzes the question of migration from the Philippines to Japan, which has dominated relations between the two countries since the late 1970s. The Philippines are one of the world’s largest labor exporters. The demographic situation of Japan determines its role as an importer of labor. However, Japanese law and society remain xenophobic. The feminization of Filipino migration to Japan has affected the image associated with Filipinos in Japan and the spectrum of difficulties faced by the Filipino community of Japan, which at the moment numbers over 200,000 persons. Prejudice, law-sanctioned discrimination and cultural differences are among the most prominent issues. This paper discusses the origins of the most significant problems. It also seeks to point at possibilities of future developments in relations between the two societies as well as Japanese and Filipino individuals.
