Japanese culture area

JapaneseThe first known Japanese person in Texas was a farmer named Kinta Tsukahara, who came to the United States in 1885 and settled in Dallas County. In 1900 he was joined by his brother, Kinya, who earned a medical degree at Baylor University and then practiced medicine in Dallas. This pattern – where an immigrant was followed by family members – was common, reflecting the close-knit nature of the Japanese family as well as the difficulty of raising travel-expense money for more than one person at a time.
