About

I have established NAC-J, a non profit organization, and are engaged in communicating the history of Japanese Americans. As part of that, I made a movie "Go for Broke! Memorie of Hawaii Japanese Niseis". This movie was premiered at the 2012 Maui Film Festival.

Currently, I am working on the new movie work "Okagesama de ~ Hawaii Nikkei Woman's Trajectory".

The revenue of the activity will be used to support Kansha Preschool run by Nisei Veterans Memorial Center of Maui.
This Kansha Preschool is a preschool that conveys pride and value as a Nikkei and gratitude to Nisei.

NPO法人NAC-Jを設立し、日系人の歴史を伝える活動をしています。その一環として、映画『Go for Broke! ハワイ日系二世の記憶』を制作しました。この映画は、2012年のマウイ映画祭でプレミア上映されました。
現在、新作『Okagesama de 〜ハワイ日系女性の軌跡〜Hawaii Nikkei Woman's Trajectory』の制作に取り掛かっています。
なお、活動の収益は、マウイのニセイ・ヴェテランズ・メモリアル・センターが運営する感謝保育園のサポートに活用されます。
この感謝保育園は、日系人としての誇りや意識、そして二世への感謝を伝える世代間交流をする保育園です。
