The Ainu or the Aynu, in the historical Japanese texts Ezo/Emishi/Ebisu or Ainu are an indigenous people of Japan (Hokkaido, and formerly northeastern Honshu) and Russia (Sakhalin, the Kuril Islands and formerly the Kamchatka Peninsula). Many Ainu today have been completely assimilated into Japanese identity.
