Amarachi Nwosu’s “Black In Tokyo” Documentary Shows The Experiences Of Black People Living In Japan


After Amarachi Nwosu moved to Japan to study as a 20-year old woman, she soon began to notice that as homogenous as the country is, there are people breaking boundaries and challenging stereotypes.

So, she decided to document the lives of five black expats in Japan through he r“Black In Tokyo” project.

“Black In Tokyo” is a documentary, which explores five subjects from all parts of the world; it talks about the cultural challenges and opportunities of being black living in Tokyo and features subjects like race relations and media representation of black culture in Asia.

Amarachi hopes that her work will inspire people to pursue their dreams irrespective of what background they come from. She also wants her work to fill the void between cultures around the world and start conversations that promote understanding among people.

Her work will be premiered in Tokyo in NYC at the international Center of Photography.
