110th Anniversary: Illustrious Nikkei



At the ceremony held in the Museum of the Nation in November 2011, painter Venancio Shinki, scientist Julio Kuroiwa, chef Humberto Sato, and ballerina Olga Shimasaki were honored as illustrious Nikkei. These four Nikkei are a pride of the Japanese community. Also, recognition was given to the following three important companies that were born at the initiative of Japanese immigrants, and whose children not only have kept them well but also improved them: Corporación Miyasato, San Fernando, and Corporación Furukawa.
