From Hokkaido to Iowa, Winners Come from Diverse Locations           

The Little Tokyo Historical Society recently announced the winners of its second annual Imagine Little Tokyo short story contest: English-language category, Nathaniel Campbell of Fairfield, Iowa (“Fish Market in Little Tokyo”); Japanese-language category, Miyuki Sato of Hokkaido, Japan “Mitate Club”; and youth category, Linda Toch, Corona, California (“Kazuo Alone”).

Winners were announced at a public reception earlier this year at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center in Los Angeles. Campbell and Sato, who were both Skyped into the reception, each received $600, while Toch was awarded $400. All three stories will be published in The Rafu Shimpo , while also being digitally posted with other finalists on the Japanese American National Museum’s Discover Nikkei (www.discovernikkei.org) and Little Tokyo Historical Society’s website (littletokyohs.org).

“We are impressed with all the finalists’ creative endeavors,” said Bill Watanabe, head of the Imagine Little Tokyo committee. “To use their imaginations to ground our beloved Little Tokyo makes this place even more current and relevant. And the addition of youth and Japanese-language categories further expands the scope of our mission.”

The following served as final judges: adult English-language, Chris Komai, Todd Shimoda and Tritia Toyota; youth, Kristin Fukushima, Traci Akemi Kato-kiriyama and Amy Uyematsu; and Japanese-language, Yukikazu Nagashima , Eijiro Ozaki and Sunny Seki.
