Abstract

Beginning with the Meiji period, Japanese population movements outside of the country followed the narratives that accompanied the expansion of the Japanese empire. Beyond the development of settler colonialism in Japanese colonies in East Asian countries, Japanese migrations to North American countries were also expected to establish a “new Japan” (shin nihon) across the Pacific.1 In this context, recent studies of Japanese migration to the United States have started focusing on the connection between Japanese transpacific migrations and the Japanese imperial expansion in East Asia. For example, a representative work of this phenomenon, written by historian Eiichirō Azuma, reveals how the experience of Japanese migrants in the United States was later appropriated by Japanese imperialists to support and promote the Japanese colonial migrations to Manchuria in the 1930s.2
