Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Hanihara presents an overview of the theories on the origins of the Japanese from the presepective of a physical anthropologist who studies modern groups. He also present a summary of the results of a ten year study of the Ainu and the Ryukyuans by himself and three other researchers. Yamaguchi Bin studied osteological materials, Misawa Shogo examined blood types, Omoto Keiichi looked at other blood factors, and Hanihara Kazuro studied tooth shape. Hanihara begins with the asumption the Japanese belong to the Mongoliod race and he believes many groups of people migrated to the Japanese islands from many directions and at many times and the groups '…interbred and underwent microevolution.' (page 83). He also proposes that 'At least since the Jomon period, there have been no large-scale population shifts or significant cross-breeding with new migrants.' (page 83). Hanihara looked at changes in East Asia populations over the last 20,000 years but only data that are or may be pertinent to Yayoi were indexed for OCM (Outline of Cultural Materials) subjects.
