Deciphering the Stone: Revealing the footprints of Katsu Goto through a gravestone inscription
Yoshinori Kato Ph.D. has been researching the life and footprints of early Japanese immigrant and labor martyr Katsu Goto in Oiso, Japan (Goto’s hometown) for many years. He translated the inscription on the recently discovered gravestone in Oiso that has provided new information, including Goto’s early transfer to Yokohama for his vocation and his possible involvement with democracy advocates influenced by the Meiji Restoration of 1868, that may help explain Goto’s background and inspiration to help his fellow immigrants in Honokaa in 1889. Using ukiyo-e (Japanese woodblock prints), Kato will visualize what Oiso looked like and discuss what might have motivated Goto to emigrate to the Big Island with the first ship of government contract sugar plantation laborers in 1885. A resident of Oiso, Kato has a bachelor of science degree from Keio
University in Tokyo, Japan and a doctoral degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Refreshments will be served. Please join this English Brown Bag Series event!
