Japanese in Hawaii: Okage Sama De, The


Authors: Dorothy Ochiai Hazuma and Jane Okamoto Komeiji | Paperback

The need for a book about the Japanese experience in Hawaii brought together the co-authors, who are themselves Nissei mothers and teachers. In the process of their collaboration, they became increasingly aware of the abiding sense of appreciation that the Japanese have for the past and its effect on the present.

The Japanese in Hawaii: Okage Sama De is a chronological account of Japanese immigrants. Enhanced by oral history, excerpts and brief biographical sketches, it includes numerous photographs- many from treasured family albums, adding a personal dimension to the history. Previously published in 1986, this new publication has been updated for 2008.
