Japanese Researchers Prove Mixed Ancestry Hypothesis After DNA Analysis 

The present day Japanese are the mixed descendants of the archipelago’s earliest settlers Jomon-jin and the late-comers Yayoi-jin who crossed the strait from the Korean peninsula, according to a genetic analysis. The researchers from the Graduate University for Advanced Studies [Sokendai] of Kanagawa prefecture [Japan] published the results of their findings in the Journal of Human Genetics on November 1st.


This research further confirms previous research findings by analysing over 900,000 DNA mutations per person, significantly improving the robustness of the result. The researchers focused on a population sample of 460 from Kanto, mainland Chinese, European descendants, in addition to another 71 Ainus and Okinawans. The result shows the present-day Japanese are the inter-marriage between the earlier settlers and later-comers. This confirms the the ‘mixed-blood’ ancestry hypothesis.


Jomon VS Yayoi

The Ainus were closest to the native Okinawans and less so to the Kanto population. The Kanto population displayed the most genetic resemblance to Koreans. Until now, there have been a number of theories postulating on the origin of the Japanese, first of which was the Jomon dispersal-adaptation hypothesis, the displacement by the Yayoi population on the Jomon population, and the mixed-blood ancestry between the Jomon and the Yayoi.

Sokedai’s professor Saito Naruya confirmed that the finding matched the mixed-blood ancestry hypothesis  The researchers plan to conduct further DNA sample analysis from the bones recovered from the Jomon burial sites.

Comments from Daum:


Unacceptable. If there is any Korean genes there, they wouldn’t be like that


No no, the ruling class are Korean, and the ruled are Japanese. Their king is also Korean. That’s not what they want to admit.


So how come they evolved to be so mean?


So Korea and Japan are same ethnicity and same nation? ke ke, Korea is the closest ethnicity to Japanese!! So we are brothers! ke ke, well we are enemies but still share the same ancestry!! Or close relatives, but Korean people always mock them as monkeys and make fun of their looks… That’s just spitting in own our face ke ke ke Koreans are only hurting themselves ke ke


Our nation is the same ethnicity as the cancer of the world, quite unpleasant…


Ah…. That’s why I seem to feel not so distant to the Japanese women in my computer~ ke ke


Very unpleasant —


If that’s what they got for mixing with us… their indigenous population… could not have been human..


It’s all our fault… We spread our seeds there… *cough*..~!!


The Baekje folks who got crushed by the Tang army fled to Japan, that’s why the Japanese emperor called himself the descendant of Baekje. This is also why they are scheming and never trust-worthy ke ke


As far as I am concerned they are mixed between the Okinawans and local monkeys.


The reason why the Korean wave is so popular in Japan is precisely because of this. In their DNAs is the idea that ‘whatever came from Korea is superior’ for thousands of years and passed down to the present day. It’s a natural reaction. The Japanese invasions of Korea in 1592 was all about stealing our pottery, artistic and intellectual achievements. Their present economic downfall could be attributed to the fact that they have not been able to steal anything from us for the last 70 years, and could not produce anything new.


Japan was founded by those who lost the power game in the Korean peninsular (Baekje, Kokuryo, Gaya…), so that’s why they are always hateful toward us. They would eliminate every one of us here and take over our land [if they could]
