Synopsis

Synopsis

Quietly elegant, yet issuing a clarion call for intervention, Sento at Sixth and Main rediscovers early Japanese American culture and presents an indisputable case for the preservation of ten key landmarks in California and Washington. The authors recreate the Japanese American experience, intertwining rich oral histories from community members with current and historical photographs, plus personal snapshots, archaeological findings, newspaper clippings, and other wonderfully nontraditional sources.

So much of the Japanese American past was lost after the attack on Pearl Harbor; terrified families burned scrapbooks and personal possessions for fear they would be labeled as traitors. Sento at Sixth and Main is a graceful effort to find that past and to explain that, even now, it is still not too late to include these places as part of the American cultural landscape.

“Beautifully conceived and produced . . . [Sento at Sixth and Main] makes . . . a pointed case for the value of structures in documenting the history of communities.”—Arcade
