That has always been my experience of Japan, even in the nineties when I first went there. That line drawn between Japanese and the rest of humanity seems uncrossable in any way that will be publicly acknowledged in Japanese society, although, if you're lucky, you might be able to cross that line with individuals. Thank god for individuals.

gosh yes. and of course the Japanese individuals who are most interested in crossing that line are the ones who aren't in Japan anymore.
