Japanese Immigrants

Where did they go? When they left Japan, the majority ended up Hawaii and California.

What did they do in the US? Most of them worked on farms in Hawaii, others worked on railroads.

They were referred to as "Japs"

Japanese Immigrants were allowed to be apart of American schools but to keep the Japanese heritage alive, they created their own school to learn about their nationality and race.

The gentlemen's agreement was an agreement between Japan and the US. It assured free immigration to the US for Japanese immigrants.

They had to undergo harsh working conditions, rude neighbor's and biased people. Their first land that they got from the US was illegal. They also were ridiculed with false claims of being dangerous and taking jobs from Americans.

More than 400,000 Japanese people went to the U.S, and 28,000 of the 400,000 went to Hawaii
