The Japanese American History Archives is an extensive, growing collection of books, periodicals, documents, maps, photographs, art and film relating to the Japanese experience in the United States from the mid-1800s, when the first Japanese pioneers set foot on American soil, to the present.

The Japanese American History Archives frequently hosts exhibits, open to the public. Topics include the earliest Japanese communities in the U.S. and the World War II evacuation and relocation of people of Japanese heritage. Some of the archival materials have appeared in documentary films produced both in the U.S. and Japan. (The photographs in this exhibit are but a few from the Japanese American History Archives collection).

The Japanese American History Archives welcomes visitors Monday through Friday from 10-.00am to 3:00pm, or by appointment. For further information, contact Seizo Oka at (415) 776-0661.
