Take Amaya’s passport



Take Amaya, age 33, and her sons Satoko, age 10, and Toshio, age 8, natives of Yamaguchi-ken, arrived in Peru in 1925 aboard the Anyo Maru with her husband who had worked in Peru since 1915 and went back to Japan to bring his family. Passport No. 566888, issued on January 27, 1925, identified the three. Her husband returned to bring them to Peru.

Two years before Take Amaya and her sons arrived in Peru the Japanese immigration under contract had come to an end. Up to then 18,727 Japanese had arrived in the country.
