Japanese word for a foreigner.
Japanese term used to describe a nonJapanese investor in Japan.
Japanese for “foreigner” or “outsider.
(ãŒã„ã˜ã‚“) Japanese word for "foreigner". Actually a contracted form of gaikokujin (å¤–å›1/2äºº), literally "outside-country-person". Gaijin, on the other hand, drops the character for country and therefore more correctly means "outsider". Some therefore feel that the use of the word gaijin in place of gaikokujin is derogatory and serves to emphasize the de facto exclusion of foreigners from many aspects of Japanese society; see Wikipedia for more detail on this.
