General reasons why people left Japan for Peru

Transcrições disponíveis nas seguintes línguas:

I don’t know what the attraction of Peru was versus the United States, but I do know that there were lots of farming, similar to I guess Hawaii, where there were a lot of folks who came for the sugar cane. I know a lot of folks went to Brazil cause there’s also sugar cane there. In Peru it’s just different farming and then different small businesses so I know a lot of folks had laundry mats, different things like that and I think by the time my great-grandpa Arakaki came at least it was already semi-developed, so just being part of that community and helping to add more to the education system and things like that.
