after the jomon is a yayoi diorama and the write-up blurb says that their flat faces and short extremities might have to do with a long time in siberia. I’m trying to figure how to write to them to get permission to show the photo of the Jomon from their site, and it’s like I can’t do anything too useful like that lately, am stuck looking up obscure and go-nowhere things, kind of like this.

There are several hypotheses about the origin of the Yayoi people:
- The most popular theory is that they were the people who brought wet rice cultivation to Japan from the Korean peninsula and Jiangnan near the Yangtze River Delta in China. This is supported by archeological researches and bones found in today southeastern China.
- Another view is that they are from the northern part of the Korean peninsula. This is because the human bones of the Doigahama ruins resemble the ancient human bones of the northern part of the Korean peninsula, and pottery is similar to the “Engraved band sentence pottery“, that is widely used during the Yayoi period and was also discovered in the Sini-Gai culture in the southwestern coastal province of Primorskaya Oblast.
The historian Ann Kumar presented genetic and linguistic evidence that some of the Yayoi people were of Austronesian origin. According to several Japanese historians, the Yayoi and their ancestors, the Wajin, originated in the today Yunnan province in southern China. Suwa Haruo considered Wa-zoku (Wajin) to be part of the Baiyue (百越).

1971, (The) Japanese and the Jews, by Isaiah Bendesan, from an NYT article, like a book review:
In April “The Japanese and the Jews” won the Oya award, the top nonfiction prize in Japan. Mr. Bendasan, who according to the flyleaf was born in Kobe of Jewish parents in 1918 and who now resides somewhere in the United States, did not turn up for the award ceremony, sending as his representative Prof. John Lawler of Indiana State University at Terre Haute. Professor Lawler remained tight‐lipped about the identity of Mr. Bendasan.
