The Gardena Gakuen (or Sunday School), had first begun as a small gathering of farm laborers' children in a rented cottage in Moneta. In the ensuing years, however, this large gathering of Japanese American pioneers would begin to establish their presence in the community. Notice the Japanese flag flying alongside the American flag, before the war hysteria of the 1940s.
