今月のニマ

Stankirk (Canada)

Stan Kirk is from originally from Canada, but now lives in Ashiya City, Japan with his wife and son. He teaches English at the Institute for Language and Culture at Konan University in Kobe. Recently Stan has been researching and writing the life histories of Japanese Canadians who were exiled to Japan at the end of World War II.

We are currently publishing Stan’s series about Basil Izumi who was born into a Japanese Canadian Anglican family in Vancouver shortly before the war. He and his family were sent to several camps near Lake Slocan during the war, and after they were exiled to Japan. They returned to Canada three years later. The series includes a brief historical overview of the relationship between the Anglican Church and Japanese Canadians.

What do you like about Discover Nikkei and why?

Reading the various stories contributed by other writers to the site has really impressed me and broadened my knowledge of the Nikkei experience. It has been deeply moving to see what makes the various life stories on the site both similar to and different from the life histories that I myself have researched and written.
