Statistics

In 2015, Japan rejected 99% of asylum applications, accepting just 27 people out of 7,586. That is double the 11 that were granted asylum in 2014.

In contrast, “In Germany, the number of applicants last year was 1.1 million, and about half of them are expected to stay,” said Eri Ishikawa, chair of the board of the Japan Association for Refugees (JAR).
