Ever since World War II, Japanese Americans have largely severed their ties with Japan, and have stressed their Americanness. Unlike other immigrant groups, Japanese Americans have often shown little interest in celebrating or participating in their traditional cultural heritage.
So how Japanese are Japanese Americans? Professor Arthur Sakamoto from the University of Texas at Austin will explore this question in terms of both the history and sociology of Japanese American communities.
