Aino People

Have you heard of the people known as the Aino? Their reduced numbers reside on the island of Hokkaido. That is the northernmost portion of Japan. Living in isolation is each woman and man. Every day, they toil with their labors. The Aino culture is markedly different from their neighbors. The men never shave as each has a long beard. However, they are peaceful and should never be feared.
