International Nikkei Day Celebrated Worldwide on June 20th

The International Nikkei Day was celebrated for the first time ever, on June 20th, 2019, a year after the 150th anniversary of the first Japanese migrants abroad to Hawai’i (the Gannenmono) celebration. Last year, at the 59th Kaigai Nikkeijin Taikai (Convention of Nikkei and Japanese Abroad) in Honolulu, it was decided that June 20th will be the “International Nikkei Day” as proposed by APN Peru. Aren’t we all proud to be Nikkei?
