Hamada Family Orchard, Parkdale, OR, ca. 1920.

Japanese began to arrive in the Hood River area by 1900. Hopes and dreams brought them to this verdant valley along the Columbia River. The promise of a better life in America, adventure, new opportunities –- Issei, the first generation, had courage and determination in common. They traveled from many parts of Japan, settling in Oregon's Hood River area, and built a strong, vibrant community.
