Within Japan, but also abroad, Ainu are often depicted as an enigmatic people. In general, misconception and inaccuracy influence information about them – one such example is the wrong idea that the Ainu language is dead. The Ainu language has mysterious origins and many experts consider it a language isolate, unrelated to any other language.
