Every emigration is a journey into the unknown, that evokes inevitable feelings of uprooting together with hope and optimism.
It was 1899 when the first group of japaneses arrived at the port of Callao (Perú) aboard the steamer SAKURA MARU.
They left their homeland to explore a new life in an absolute foreign territory, facing a process of adaptation and cultural fusion in a new land… The Perú.
