A celebration and exploration of Japanese American culture will be featured in a book signing with Gil Asakawa, author of Being Japanese American, at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, August 16, at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj).

  Being Japanese American is a fun and entertaining sourcebook, as well as a celebration of Japanese American culture, history, and heritage. While detailing favorite foods, customs, words, games and holidays, it explores the painful history of immigration and WWII internment, together with suggestions for connecting to your Japanese American community and passing on traditions across generations and into intermarried families.


This revised edition has fresh interviews with Japanese Americans about their life experiences and explores contemporary Japanese pop culture like anime and J-pop. It also includes information on traveling to Japan, together with resources on the Web.
This program is co-sponsored by JAMsj and Nikkei Traditions of San Jose Japantown. Books may be pre-purchased at either JAMsj (408-294-3138) or Nikkei Traditions (408-297-7554) at a special price of $16.00 (plus tax) prior to the event. Books will sell for $18.95 (plus tax) the day of the event.
