Before the Bloods & Crips there were “Japs” & “Nips” (you can't repeat that 🙅‍♂️). The Crenshaw District was the Mecca for Japanese-Americans (JA) after WWII and by the 1960’s, Crenshaw had the densest Japanese diaspora with local schools having over 40% JA students. This was also a turning point where Sansei (third generation) began defining their own cultural identity and utilizing their voice on political issues. Due to discrimination they were relegated to manual labor trades, one of which gave birth to the original gardeners of California. You can still see remnants of their influence today in the neighborhood, just peep the landscaping. Blood & Cripsの前は、“Japs” & “Nips”(これは口にしちゃだめな言葉🙅‍♂️) がいた。クレンショー地区は第二次世界戦争後、日系アメリカ人(JA[Japanese-American略])のメッカであり、1960年代頃にはクレンショーの日本人密度は一番濃く、地元の学校では40%以上がJAだった。この時代は、三世にとってもターニングポイントであり、彼ら自身の文化のアイデンティティーや政治問題にも声を上げるようになった頃であったのだ。差別もあったお陰で肉体労働に彼らは追いやられた。その内一つの業種が植木屋(ガーデナー)であり、それはカリフォルニアで初となった。彼らの影響は受け継がれ今でもその時の名残がある。それは景色を見れば一目瞭然だ。#crftbymaki

Back in the day, many locals considered Boyle Heights as part of Little Tokyo. From the early 1900’s up until the 1970’s it was an enclave for Japanese immigrants and their growing families. Japanese folk worked and played in Little Tokyo and they lived across the bridge in Boyle Heights. Although both neighborhoods are experiencing drastic changes, i.e. gentrification, down-home spots like Otomisan get props for keeping it trilla. その昔、ローカルの人たちにとって、ボイルハイツはリトルトウキョウの一部だった。1900年代のはじめから1970年代頃まで、そこは日本人の移民とその家族の居留地だったのだ。日本の人たちはリトルトウキョウで仕事をし、そしてそこで遊び、橋を渡ったすぐのボイルハイツに住んでいた。現在、その二カ所にはジェントリフィケーションなど大きな変化が起きている。だから根強く頑張っているOtomisanのようなところは本当に貴重だ。
