How to explain non-Japanese
In English, an alternative to saying "foreigner", one could say "non- XYZ."
For example "non-Japanese" or "non-British" and so on.
"Many non-British residents of London are worried about Brexit."
Is there a way to say this in Japanese?
I realize the word 外人 がいじん "gaijin" is commonly used but I'm asking if there is a similar way to the English "non-Japanese."
It does not have to relate to countries only. A similar example is "Music is a non-visual art."
Here are some target examples:
"The village allows non-Japanese residents to vote in the election."
"Many non-Japanese spouses don't want to send their children to the cram schools."
"Six non-Italians work at the famous design studio in Florence."
and so on.
