The index of linguistic fractionalization in Japan is 0.0178. This means that within the country there is one major language and a few minor languages. Unrelated languages share few characteristics of grammatical structure, vocabulary, and etymological heritage. http://www.confiduss.com/en/jurisdictions/japan/demographics/
