Granted, I don't think that they'd actually contribute much to Japanese society.

It would take a huge paradigm shift in Japanese society to allow this to happen, though; Zainichi Koreans who have been in Japan for multiple generations and are otherwise totally assimilated, and by this point are often at least half Japanese by blood, aren't necessarily viewed as Japanese, let alone recent immigrants from other parts of Asia or the Western world who have greater outward physical differences and an even greater disparity in cultural origins. You're talking about a completely homogeneous society, whose homogeneity is a massive part of their national and social identity; it would be tantamount to the US or Canada restricting immigration, from uneducated laborers on up to acclaimed businesspeople and doctors, and pushing nationalism uber alles.

There is no tradition of an immigrant culture in japan. If your grandparents immigrated to japan and you're a 3rd generation born you are still considered a foreigner.
South Korea is probably even worse. You'd have to be a pure Korean by blood ethnicity to be considered a PURE Korean(in other words, Korean race).
