A photographic exhibit covering the history and culture of Japanese Americans in Hawaii will be on display at the Honolulu Festival, as part of the Educational Program in support of the sub-theme “Harmony over the Ocean, Journey to Peace”.
Co-hosted by the Nisei Veterans Legacy, a photographic exhibit covering the history and culture of Japanese Americans in Hawaii will be on display (narrative text and captions are in Japanese and English).
The exhibit covers the initial immigration of Issei (first generation immigrants) from Japan in the late 1800s to modern day Hawaii, showing how the Nikkei (overseas Japanese) in Hawaii have merged their Japanese cultural values with the blend of cultures in Hawaii. Prominent Japanese Americans from Hawaii are displayed along with the prefectures in Japan that their ancestors emigrated from.
The intent of the exhibit is to educate people on the story of Hawaii’s Nikkei and to promote goodwill between Japan and the United States through deeper understanding of the cross-cultural values and customs between Japan and Hawaii.
