Based on research conducted in the mid-1970s, this book profiles the regional development of Japanese cultural traditions in British Columbia, southern Alberta, and metropolitan Toronto. The authors examine how long-held Japanese beliefs and practices responded to the social upheaval caused by diaspora, internment, prejudice, and cultural assimilation, and provide us with a snapshot of Japanese culture in post-war Canada, 100 years after the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants. Firsthand accounts, archival photographs, and evocative descriptions round out this fascinating look at a culture in transition which still retains its essential identity and ultimately influences the culture around it.
