There were no newly diagnosed Japanese leprosy patients in 2005, but one in 2006, and one in 2007. According to a legend, Empress Komyo washed a leprosy patient in the 8th century.In medieval times, people with leprosy were discriminated against and lived separately from the main dwelling areas of the villages. This discrimination was bolstered by religion -one of the sutras of the Nichiren sect stated that "those who do not respect this sutra will get leprosy in the next stage of life."During the short period (1549-1611) when Catholic priests were allowed to preach Christianity, they built special hospitals where they treated leprosy patients. But this came to an end when the Tokugawa Government enacted the death penalty for the crime of being a Catholic.Otani Yoshitsugu a famous samurai of the sengoku era also suffered from Leprosy. It was said to be one of the factors that led to his defeat at the battle of Sekigahara Article 6. When the Prefectural Governor finds that a patient may...

Long denigrated as dialects of Japanese, the Ryukyuan languages are today recognized as languages in their own right. However, speakers of Ryukyuan languages have suffered from stigmatization, oppressive language policies and domination from outside the Ryukyu Archipelago. As a result, the Ryukyuan languages are now severely endangered. This volume depicts, roughly in chronological order, aspects which have led to the language crisis in the Ryukyus today. Taking account of these factors is important because endangered languages can only be maintained and revitalized on the basis of a comprehensive understanding of why these languages became endangered in the first place. The chapters of this book have been written by leading experts in Ryukyuan sociolinguistics and the scope encompasses the entire field. It sheds light on the dark side of language modernization, on a misplaced obsession with monolingualism, and on Japan’s difficulties in surmounting its invented self-image.
