Central Japanese Society of Peru, 1917



The Central Japanese Society of Peru (Peru Chou Nihonjinkai) was established in 1917. This entity included all Japanese residing in Peru and played a prominent role in and out of the community, establishing a permanent dialogue among the Japanese and between these and the Peruvian and Japanese authorities in order to discuss and resolve issues and deal with cases requiring social assistance.
