I was born in Havana City. My paternal grandfathers emigrated from Japan to Cuba in the mid 20th century. I live in Canada since 2005, where I came to pursue an academic career (Master and PhD degrees on Latin American cinema, literature and history). I created a website about Japanese immigration to Cuba, cubanonikkei.com. It has allowed me to connect with many nikkei in and outside Cuba, and share their stories.

  • community history
