Japan probe features the following story :
Are Japanese actually descendants of one of the Jewish Lost tribes. This story re-surfaces once in a while, and there was even a book describing the similarities between the Shinto and Jewish religion.
I have a firm belief that it is not true. Although we don’t really know what ever happened to the 10 tribes, Jews appear here and there (India, Ethiopia, Myanmar), I don’t really think no book, or Hebrew writing exists in Japan.
It is a nice story, anyway.
