ABOUT US

Every person and entity has a story to tell. Since the first Japanese official delegation set foot in New York in 1860, thousands of Japanese and Japanese Americans have resided in New York, and have had an impact on a wide array of fields ranging from business to public service to art. Many became U.S. citizens, and as Japanese Americans, contributed greatly to U.S.-Japan relations by building bridges between the U.S. and Japan. While some are well-known for such contributions to history, others are lesser-known, or have passed away without being recognized.
