Community activities

Japanese Americans of the pre-World War II era, urban and rural dwellers alike, lived in tight-knit communities bound together by a wide variety of shared associations and institutions. In an era marked by pronounced anti-Asian racism, Japanese Americans in cities tended to live in segregated ghettoes. While discrimination was the reason for isolated Japanese American neighborhoods, the well-organized and tight-knit community provided a rich social and cultural foundation for the Japanese immigrants and their children.
