Information on Monrovia's Japanese Americans

The City is excited to be celebrating its fourth Neighborhood Treasure! Families like the Uyedas, Tsuneishi, Asanos, Kuromiyas and others came to Monrovia to build strawberry farms, grocery stores, fruit stands and much more. After Pearl Harbor, many Japanese Monrovians were sent to Internment Camps. After their release, many returned to Monrovia and graduated their children from Monrovia schools, resumed their businesses, and continued to contribute to the growth of the community. Their contributions made significant advancements for local agriculture and business interests. Monrovia's Japanese Americans were true pioneers!
