Japan-US Relations: the Role of Japanese Americans – G1 Global Conference 2014

The 442nd Regiment of the US Army, composed entirely of the Japanese-American soldiers, became "the most decorated unit in the US military history” during the World War II, but the Japanese-Americans living in the mainland US were sent to the internment camps at the same time. The history of the Japanese-Americans is not well known in Japan. This session will shed light on somewhat underrated roles played by Japanese-Americans in both historical and contemporary contexts of Japan-US relations.
