    The Japanese government’s policy toward foreign workers becomes the main topic examined in this research. The Japanese government’s policy toward foreign workers is being analyzed from the aspects of formulation and implementation of the policy. This research uses a qualitative approach with literature study and interview as the technique of the data collection. Data analysis draws on qualitative analysis consisted of multiple steps such as data collection, data reduction, data displays, and conclusion drawing. Data validation uses the triangulation of source and technique. The conceptual framework of this research departs from the analysis of policy’s formulation and implementation, collective identity theory, and the concepts of the Japanese minds. The result of this research shows that the collective identity as Nihonjin (Japanese) manifests as an obstacle for the Japanese government on formulating a policy to import foreign workers caused by the interest to protect Japanese identity or culture. This influence of collective identity as an obstacle itself is shown by the still-high Japanese public’s resistance toward the acceptance of outsiders’ groups, and the government’s statements which mention the interest to preserve the culture or the national identity of Japan. The implementation of the government’s policy itself doesn’t match with what it’s supposed to be, and it causes a form of dualism which can be explained by the concept of the Japanese minds: honne to tatemae and hedataru to najimu. Based on the immigration principles, there should be no foreign unskilled workers in Japan; however the reality shows that there are indeed unskilled workers working in Japan which bizarrely represents the largest number of foreign workers among the other categories. Keywords: Policy Analysis, Immigrant Workers, Collective Identity, Honne to Tatemae, Hedataru to Najimu.
