Cerro Azul Port and Sakura Maru



Between 1899 and 1923, 83 Japanese groups arrived in Peru hired to work on haciendas dedicated to sugarcane and cotton cultivation.

The ships arriving at Callao port then continued their voyage to other ports on the Peruvian coast in order to disembark immigrants. The Cerro Azul port in Cañete (south of Lima), as shown in this 1913 image, was one of them.
