    As a Caucasian who has lived in Asia for almost 30 years I can confirm that “we all look alike” to Asians. For example, hair is not black to them, it is varying degrees of black, all with different words, in many cultures. Asian look at nose shape and especially cheek bone shape. With skin there are many shades of Asian skin. Japanese talk a lot about “Shoyuu Gao.” Translated as “Soy Face.” Westerners have no relevant comparison to understand this description.

    Most important in many Asian cultures is whether you have a fold in your eye lid (50% of Japanese have a fold, others do not).

    It is fascinating and illuminating to understand these differences. What differences Asians do see with Caucasians is we are taller and bigger in many repspects…but that is about it.

    A good comparison is how in Thai language there is a sound “Ma.” In Thai it is pronounced with 5 different tones, all sounding similar to those not used to tonal languages. Yet all completely different words in Thai that sound completely different as dog and cat sound to English speakers.
