Weddings

The rituals of weddings and funerals, whether Christian or Buddhist, were community events. The ceremonies were often elaborate and blended Japanese and American customs. During the World War II incarceration, many Issei (first-generation immigrant) parents confined in the camps were notified that their sons had died in combat.
