The Japanese in the Philippines 1880’s-1990’s by Motoe Terami-Wada

Title: The Japanese in the Philippines 1880’s-1990’s
Author: Motoe Terami-Wada
Synopsis: There is so much in Japanese Philippine history that needs to be uncovered but for many Filipino historians they are separated from that past because of language. Fortunately, we have the work of Dr. Wada who makes available not only her work on the 19th century Philippines but also some reflections on the contemporary relationship between our peoples by studying Japanese images and perception of pre-war and postwar Filipinos. Although the title of this book is The Japanese in the Philippines, it mainly focuses on the Japanese community in Manila area. This humble collection of essays on the Japanese residents in the Philippines is a collection of merely a fragment of the Japanese population, as Japanese communities resided in other areas of the Philippines such as Davao, Baguio, and Iloilo.
