This story began in 1868 when the ﬁrst group of Japanese migrated to Hawaii. Follow the journey of these people and their descendants, the Hawaii Nikkei (overseas Japanese) of today.
The goal of this historic exhibit is to share how the immigrants’ culture and values were preserved over the years and blended with the diverse cultures of Hawaii.
We hope this exhibit, created by descendants of these immigrants, will perpetuate the relationship between Hawaii and Japan and strengthen the interactions and understanding between the U.S. and Japan.
