Asians - a collective name for the indigenous population of Asia, as well as immigrants from the Asian part of the Eurasian continent, regardless of racial, religious, national or linguistic affiliation.

The use of the term Asians varies by country. In several countries of the New World (Brazil, USA), the term Asians is a standard designation of immigrants from Asia during a census. Australia uses a slightly more complex system to analyze population censuses, in which Asia is divided into four regions — central and southern; southeast; northeast; and the Middle East (including north Africa). In the CIS countries and Europe, in such cases, a specific nationality is usually used (Kyrgyz, Chinese, Indians, etc.). Often the term "Asians" is mistakenly identified with the term "Mongoloids."

Many people think that Asians are all on one face and find it difficult to distinguish between them. But Asians themselves easily distinguish people of their nationality from other peoples of Asia. How do they do it? Now we find out!

The Japanese (Japanese nihondzin / nippondzin, nihon-mindzoku) are the people, the main (over 98%) population of Japan. They speak Japanese.

The population is 130 million people, in Japan itself - 127 million. The Japanese also live in the United States (1.2 million people), mainly in the state of California and the Hawaiian Islands, in Brazil (1.5 million people), in Canada (99 thousand people) and other countries in America, Europe, Asia and Australia.

Most Japanese live in their own national state of Japan (Nippon, Nihon), located on the Japanese islands. The old name, The Japanese Empire, “Give Nippon” literally means “Great Japan” or “The Great Land of the Rising Sun.” The original name of the first ancient Japanese state is Yamato.

The faces of the Japanese are elongated oval, the nose is more pronounced, the eyes are large with a wide cut, the head of the Japanese is large.

The Chinese are a community of people united on some basis. There are several interpretations of how to determine a person’s involvement in the Chinese.

  • These are people with citizenship and living in the People's Republic of China (mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau) or in the Republic of China (Taiwan). Concerning whether citizenship in China makes “Chinese”, there are different opinions, since supporters of Taiwan independence do not believe that Taiwan is part of China. This view of the Chinese nation has a legal basis in the PRC and the Republic of China.
  • The concept of the Chinese nation, adopted in the PRC and the Republic of China, includes all 56 groups living in China and officially recognized by the government, for example, such as the Mongols, Manchu, Tibetans, and other established ethnic groups living in the territory of modern China at least from the dynasty Qing (1644-1911). It also applies to Chinese overseas.
  • Ethnic representation: the Chinese name the main ethnic group inhabiting China - Han.
  • In addition to nationality, the definition of “Sinology” includes: place of residence (geographical factors), origin (biological reasons), and pedigree (historical and pedigree factors).

The Chinese nation is multi-ethnic, 56 different nationalities live there, and some of them are completely different from the Chinese in our view.

For example, Uyghurs are more like Tajiks. Therefore, it is simply impossible to deduce some kind of averaged type of the Chinese phenotype.

The faces of the Chinese are rounder than the Japanese and Korean.

China is a huge multinational country, unlike Korea and Japan (which are more ethnically homogeneous), which makes it much more difficult to differentiate and generalize by external features.

It is also believed that Koreans can be distinguished by small palms.

Koreans are the main population of the Korean Peninsula.

The Korean self-name (ethnonym) in Korean: Joseon Saram (Cor.) In the Democratic People's Republic of Korea and Hanguk Saram (Cor.) In the Republic of Korea.

According to the anthropological type, they belong to the East Asian branch of the Mongoloid race. They speak Korean.

The main religions are Confucianism, Buddhism, Christianity, shamanism, but most do not profess any religion. Previously, Buddhism reigned supreme, but in the fourteenth century it lost the status of state religion. A large number of Koreans living in the DPRK adhere to atheistic views.

Korean faces tend to be flat, with high square cheekbones.

The eyelids of Koreans are more often single than double (European style), however, recently a high percentage of the Korean population has operated eyelids, which can be misleading regarding their nationality.

The Japanese most often wear clothes of world brands and are distinguished by good taste. The Chinese do not always fall into the tone and beautiful combination of clothing elements; they have their own, different from Japanese, style.

For example, a Chinese woman can easily be found in the evening on the street in her pajamas, Japanese women never do that. Chinese men allow themselves to go in cheap sportswear. The Japanese, if they use a sporty style, only wear expensive, world-famous things.

The Koreans by style of clothing are somewhere in the middle: ahead of the Chinese, but have not yet caught up with the Japanese.

If you cannot distinguish between languages ​​at all, then you can determine nationality by the way of communication. The Chinese speak loudly, often spit on the ground, even in public places. The language of the Japanese is stress-free, monotonously polite, they speak muffledly, so in Japan it is always very quiet even in public places.
