Synopsis

"An excellent introduction to the Japanese American." --Senator Daniel K. Inouye "Every ethnic group here should have a book written about it as sensitive as the one by Dennis Ogawa on Hawaii's Japanese." --John Griffin, in the Honolulu Advertiser "Dr. Ogawa writes with charm and perception.... It's fun to read." --Bill Hosokawa, in the Pacific Citizen "Jan Ken Po, Ai Kono Sho" "Junk An'a Po, I Canna Show" These words to a simple child's game brought from Japan and made local, the property of all of Hawaii's people, symbolize the cultural transformation experienced by Hawaii's Japanese. It is the story of this experience that Dennis Ogawa tells so well here.
