„ A 2017 Hokkaido survey lists the Ainu population as slightly more than 13,000, but some estimates put it as high as 250,000.“

So who is Ainu? They did intermarry since the opening up of Hokkaido in Meiji age. That will account for the huge difference in population numbers.

Being a stretched out country how many Okinawas are there? And that’s a much more strategical location these days.
