Shoe-Repair Man (Eta, or Burakumin)
Unknown Studio 

The Eta, or Burakumin (village people) as they are now known, have long suffered from segregation and discrimination from the wider Japanese community. However, they are colloquially known as the 'invisible race' since there is no way to distinguish their physical characteristics from other Japanese. Traditionally, they were employed in the so-called 'dirty' jobs that other Japanese avoided. They were public executioners, undertakers, butchers and leather and fur processors. It is estimated that the Burakumin population today may amount to 3 million from a total population of 126 million.
