We catalog artifacts from the greater Japanfornia cultural diaspora. For the most part we are most interested in things originating in either Japan or California and make appearances in the other area of the country.
We tend to follow rabbit holes for Japanese and Japanese American character actors from the 70s and 80s.
- Hāfu: People who are half Japanese.
- Nikkei: People of Japanese ancestry born outside of Japan.
- Gaijin in Japan: Non-Japanese in Japan.
- Nihonjin in the West: Japanese born in Japan, often living outside of Japan.
