2017LA研修 2月1日 尾崎栄玲




On the 2nd day, we visited Japanese museum. The museum is dedicated to sharing the experience of Americans of Japanese ancestry, an integral part of U.S. history and culture through exhibitions, resources, public programs. In the museum, Japanese Americans guided us and she told us an impressive story:

“The United States, called the ‘melting pot’, is a country that recognizes people born in the U.S. regardless of their parents relatives. As such, Japanese Americans are Americans too.”

Japanese Americans have suffered severe living conditions and unfair racial discrimination. In establishing the museum, there is a feeling of “We should not weaken the facts of past regarding Japanese Americans”.
