Memorial held to remember Meiji gov't-backed Ainu assimilation

TOKYO, Japan - Three Ainu people offer their prayers at a vacant lot in Tokyo on Aug. 10 in the first memorial for indigenous Ainu people who were forced to leave their homes in Hokkaido and study in the capital during the early Meiji Period (1868-1912). The memorial was held at the former site of a school, Kaitakushi Kari Gakko, and styled after a traditional Ainu ceremony dedicated to their ancestors. (Kyodo)
