San Mateo Bridge, Symbol of San Mateo
One of the categories which I have been looking for was history of Japanese immigrants in US. Central Library of San Mateo has collection of Japanese books in this category. I borrowed several Japanese books there in this category. One of the book was "Japanese Overseas". It told me there are about 1 million Japanese living outside of Japan in 1999. Some others were simply history book about Japanese immigrants in the US.
I was looking for a book telling the history of Japanese Americans centered on author's personal experience. And I have given the attention to this book "Poem of San Mateo" -Japanese Title, San Mateo-no-Uta- by Ms. Fujie Shinozaki, who has interesting immigration experience with his father.
I have been living in San Mateo County for more than 10 years now. So, I decided to pick up the book and read. Now I am very glad that I made a decision to borrow this book.
