I'm not sure what's meant by this, that a couple of people posted, as supposedly the lightest Asians. Buryats and Yakuts are relatively dark. Buryats are related to Mongols, I'm not sure why people think they're light? And with Uighurs, it really depends. Evenks are definitely darker. The lightest of Siberia's peoples are the Yukagirs, having lived near the Arctic coast for eons. They're pale, I guess like the Japanese.

Uyghurs are actually not lighter than Han Chinese. Because their Caucasoid ancestors were more related to Middle Easterners and Afghans than Europeans.

Well from what I've seen North Asians are all pretty pale, but some can get dark due to the solar reflection off snow. Inuit seem darker than more southerly tundra and steppe dwelling peoples.

I haven't been to Java but many Indonesians here look like Malays, although a lot seem to have some Chinese ancestry I think.

Javanese/Sundanese people are closer Austro-Asiatic people rather than Austronesians, they are actually closer to the Cambodians than other Austronesian people who live in the archipelago of Nusantara.. not surprising since most people who live in Java currently have their ancestor (about 2000 years ago) coming in from Siam region, same with Bali. But i don't think Javanese people have that much Chinese ancestry, unless you mistaken Chinese Indonesians who speak Javanese as one.

like you said earlier Japanese of Okinawa have their own look that differentiate them from other Japanese, well if you are familiar with the people of Indonesia, you can actually see the "Javanese" look or "Sumatran" look or 'Balinese" look or "Malaysian" look that actualy enables you to see how different their facial structure are. There are certain look that Malaysian Malay have that distinguish them from being Indonesians, but i can't really express it in words.

A lot of pure Javanese could pass for mainland SEA's and southern Chinese:

Would you say Austronesians from the Filipinos are more distant/more similar to Polynesians/Micronesians? Maybe along with pure Taiwanese aborigines?

I'd say a lot of Malays can look pretty 'oriental' too.
