By Tsukasa Matsueda.

This book brings to light the subtle cultural teachings of the first Japanese immigrants in America, instilled in their children through their everyday actions and expressions.

With profound insight, deep understanding of language, and years of conversation with the pioneers, Tsukasa Matsueda shares the way of the Issei—who amidst struggle and adversity, learned to merge Japanese culture and social context to thrive in America.

This book provides an incisive account of the Issei, the Japanese American experience of a generation now gone, leaving an imprint on succeeding generations, and suggesting mottos relevant for society today.

Paper: 100 pp.
