I found this when looking for some Japan info on immigrants…
“The image of Brazilians living in Japan has taken a beating recently with a series of murder-robberies and hit-and-runs in which Brazilian suspects fled the country to evade arrest.
When a Brazilian accused of slaying a Shizuoka Prefecture family fled Japan, Brazilians feared they would become targets of discrimination.
A group of Brazilians here decided to fight back with a campaign teaching Brazilians how to be good residents of Japan.
At an international business convention of over 100 Brazilian businesses at the Nagoya Port Messe in Minato Ward, Nagoya, in May, Bom Brasileiro (Good Brazilian) campaigners moved through the crowd.
They distributed fliers in both Japanese and Portuguese explaining the rules about separating trash for recycling–a task many foreign residents find complex.
One Brazilian woman who got a flier said: “It is a great program. I will definitely remember to sort my trash.”
A man said: “The campaign is quite valuable in the sense that it promotes understanding between the two cultures.”
Since starting the campaign in March, Bom Brasileiro has distributed 300 fliers on the streets of Nagoya every morning, targeting mostly Brazilians.
Bom Brasileiro’s founders sought corporate sponsorship to get the idea off the ground, and several firms that hire Brazilian workers stepped up to the plate, pledging 30,000 yen a month in donations. Currently, there are about 30 companies chipping in nationwide, including one based in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture.
Craudio Akiyama, 37, living in Nagoya, heads the Bom Brasileiro office.
“We want to show the good side of Brazilians and further strengthen our ties with Japanese society,” Akiyama said.
The group plans to hand out fliers each month on new themes, such as not drinking and driving and sex education.”
