Ainu Anglican Bishop

The Rt. Rev. Paul Saneaki Nakamura 

One of the last living Japanese naval aviators, the former Anglican Bishop of Okinawa, the Rt. Rev. Paul Saneaki Nakamura spoke to members of the U.S. Marine Corps last month recounting his training as a kamikaze pilot in the closing months of the Second World War and of his subsequent conversion to Christianity. Read the report here.

Notice the Bishop's red skin tone and his Ainu facial structure: broad forehead, thick brows, wider nose; high, flat cheek bone structure. Click on the "relating reading" below to see other photos of Ainu men.

There were Ainu among Abraham's ancestors, so in a way, this man coming to Messiah represents closing a big loop.

The Ainu were known to be mighty warriors and their rulers were among the "mighty men of old" mentioned in Genesis.
