Problems with Tattoes in Japan

Dating a Japanese guy who is having trouble finding full-time employment due to having tattoos. He was hired as a part timer at a bike shop and tattoos weren’t a problem. Over the past two months, he has impressed his manager who then got him set up an interview on spot with a higher up in the company for a full time position. They were enthusiastic about him and offered him a position with conditions. One of them being he must remove his tattoos. None of his tattoos are visible with clothing and they’re small. He tried to explain that they are a part of his identity but they said they cannot make exceptions for one person. Anyone else been through something like this? Can employers discriminate against tattoos like this? It’s not illegal or in their policy !
