Support Discover Nikkei

Mission Statement

Discover Nikkei is an international network that celebrates cultural diversity and explores both global and local identities. The project connects generations and communities by sharing stories and perspectives of the Nikkei, people of Japanese descent who have migrated and settled throughout the world.

Discover Nikkei connects communities around the globe—promoting cross-cultural understanding, international relations, and education.

We invite you to become a part of Discover Nikkei! There are many ways you can become involved:

  • DONATE: Discover Nikkei was created through a major grant from The Nippon Foundation, but relies on the generosity of individual donors to nurture its ongoing work.

  • SHARE YOUR STORIES: We want to hear from you! Post your own personal or community stories, articles, and pictures. Discover Nikkei is a vibrant online community because of the great variety of its content.
  • TELL A FRIEND: Encourage friends, relatives and others to visit this site! Share links to our content. Mention us in your blog, Facebook, MySpace, or Twitter.
  • VOLUNTEER: We have an ongoing need for writers, translators, editors, and proofreaders—in four languages.
