The number of Americans who identify themselves as Japanese declined to 796,700 in the 2000 census, from 847,562 in 1990, partly because of low immigration and birth rates. Also in the 2000 census, 350,000 cited Japanese and other backgrounds, the highest rate of multi-ethnic identification of any Asian group. What does this mean for the future of Japanese American culture? Is it being diluted? Will it disappear through assimilation? Tell us your opinion.
