is a name for the dominant native ethnic group of Japan. It is a term that came to be used around the late 19th century to distinguish the residents of mainland Japan from other minority ethnic groups who have resided in the peripheral areas of Japan, such as the Ainu, Ryukyuans, Nivkh, Oroks, as well as Koreans, Taiwanese, and Taiwanese aborigines who were incorporated into the Empire of Japan in the early 20th century. The name “Yamato” comes from the Yamato Court that existed in Japan in the 4th century, and was originally the name of the region where the Yamato people first settled in modern Nara Prefecture.
