Angel Island Immigration Station
San Francisco, California
United States

Presented by the Nichi Bei Foundation, 
in partnership with the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation 

Rediscover the little-known history of the Japanese and Japanese American legacy at Angel Island, where 85,000 persons of Japanese descent-the second largest immigrant group-landed between 1910 to 1940, before actually setting foot in America.

This story and historic site would have been lost if Alexander Weiss hadn't discovered the melancholy poem carvings in the walls of the immigration barracks, which were slated to be demolished. Weiss is an employee of the California State Parks and a student of San Francisco State University's Professor George Araki. Weiss told Araki about the carvings, which led to a movement to save the immigration barracks, just as the Department of Asian American Studies was being form at San Francisco State University. 

The pilgrimage features many events, including the following:  

  • Guest speaker Judy Yung, co-author of Angel Island: Immigrant Gateway to America
  • Nikkei History at Angel Island exhibit and talk
  • Site tours
  • Genealogical research
  • Storytelling
  • Music
  • Kid's Corner

Program is 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Program with speakers and performance to begin at 12:30 p.m.
