Introduction / History

The Japanese began coming to Argentina early in the twentieth century and were from Okinawa and Kagoshima. Before World War Two, the Japanese worked in business and other work such as in factories. During the war Argentina was neutral for a time, meaning there was little trouble for the Japanese here. Later on in the war for about two years there was a ban on Japanese meetings and newspapers among other restrictions.
In the 1960s and after, more Japanese came to live in Argentina. The financial opportunities in agriculture caused many Japanese to want to live here.
In Buenos Aires there are Japanese associations and language schools and there is also the Buenos Aires Japanese gardens.
