Hawaii Nikkei Legacy Exhibit

Thank You

The Nisei Veterans Legacy, the Japan-America Society of Hawaii, Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i, Hawaii Hochi and Hawaii Tourism Japan hope that your walk through this exhibit deepened your knowledge of the journey of the Hawaii Nikkei.

Japanese Americans have a special role to play in the relationship between the U.S. and Japan. With feet planted in both countries, we the Hawaii Nikkei hope to deepen the bond between Hawaii and Japan for our future generations.
