Gaijin (外人?, [ɡaidʑiɴ]) (literally "outside person") is a Japanese word for "foreigner," "non-Japanese", "alien" or "outsider".[1] The word is composed of two kanji: gai (?), meaning "outside"; and jin (?), meaning "person." There are similarly composed words to refer to foreign things, most fundamentally gaikoku (外国?, foreign country), but also to various other things such as the common words gaisha (外車?, foreign car), gaika (外貨?, foreign cash), and gaitame (外為?, foreign exchange). The word can refer to nationality, race, or ethnicity, but in Japanese these are generally conflated.
