Description of Lecture
On the eve of Sao Joao, fireworks exploded over the Santos's sky, the Kasato Maru, a Japanese steamboat, anchored at the Port of Santos, Sao Paulo. The first wave of Japanese immigrants were overwhelmed by the specacular of colors and sounds which they believed was the way the people of Brazil were welcoming them to their new home. Arriving in 1908, the Japanese were the last of the large immigrant groups to arrive in Latin America, following in the aftermath of the immigrant waves from Southern Europe and the Middle East. This presentaion chronicles the Japanese economical, social, and cultural influences on the brazilian landscape one hundred years after the arrival of the first Japanese Issei (first generation of immigrants) in Brazil.
