About Japantown

Japantown is a neighborhood in San Jose, California.

It is the only official Japantown in the United States. It was created by Japanese immigrants during the time of Japanese exclusion laws in California. The community was formed by Issei who came to work on farms and factories in the area. The Issei built many Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines which are still standing today. Today, Japantown has a large population of Japanese-Americans, apart from many Korean-Americans, Chinese-Americans, and other Asian-Americans living there.

There are many festivals held throughout the year to celebrate Japanese culture and heritage with food, music, and dance performances..
