The Nisei Veterans Legacy, in conjunction with the Japan American Society of Hawaii, Hawaii Tourism Japan, the Japanese Cultural Center of Hawaii and JICA, hosted a photographic exhibit that documented the Japanese American experience in Hawaii! The exhibit followed the initial immigration of Issei from Japan, and showcased the Nikkei experience in modern day Hawaii.
The exhibit will travel to several locations in Japan in order to further strengthen ties between the United States and Japan, and to increase interest in Japanese American culture.
The exhibit was showcased at the Japanese Overseas Migration Museum in Yokohama through September 3.
