Japan Across the Seas
The Japanese who have settled in Argentina since the end of the 19th century came for many reasons: wanderlust, good farming, and even a love for tango. Japan Across The Seas weaves together the tales of the old and the young, the Japanese-born and the second-generation, to tell the history of the migrations that led to the establishment of Japanese-Argentine communities in Misiones, Buenos Aires, and Cordoba; of their struggles to balance their identities; of the discovery and maintenance of Japanese culture; and of their attachment to Argentina. In doing so, Japan Across The Seas paints a complex and multifaceted portrait of the diversity of the Japanese-Argentine experience.
