The caste of untouchables





Interesting mention of this very thing in Jake Adelstein's "Tokyo Vice" He's describing the Yakuza:

"Another large faction is made up of dowa, the former untouchable caste of Japan that handled butchering animals, making leather goods, and doing other “unclean” jobs. Even though the caste system is gone, racism toward dowa remains.

Adelstein, Jake. Tokyo Vice (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard) (p. 87). Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group. Kindle Edition."
