Hotel industry

Many entrepreneurial Japanese families owned and operated hotels in Japantowns or Chinatowns. In Seattle, for instance, the "skidroad" neighborhood featured many Japanese-run hotels where single men of various races and backgrounds lived. The hotels provided housing as well as income for the families.
