Editorial Reviews

A little known corner in the Port of Los Angeles was once home to nearly 3000 Japanese immigrants and their families. These pioneers of the fishing industry prospered for several decades until 1941, when World War II triggered the tragic end to their tight-knit village.

The Lost Village of Terminal Island is the story of this unique place as told by its original inhabitants, the American-born nisei who spent their childhood there. From its formation nearly 100 years ago to the ongoing struggle to keep the community alive, these nisei will always consider Terminal Island their Furusato - Home Sweet Home. Special Edition narrated by Rob Fukuzaki, ABC7 sports anchor.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This is an engrossing, well researched and well conceived documentary on the thriving Japanese-American community that developed in San Pedro, and especially East San Pedro--today's Terminal Island--in the decades before 1941. Today, the canneries are gone, the fishing fleet is greatly diminished, and all traces of the former community have been built over and effectively erased. This video should be of interest not just to local historians, but to a wider audience interested in Japanese-Americans, ethnic relations, the WWII internment policy, pre-WWII life, etc.
