Abstract

After the Sino-Japanese War (!894-1895), overpopulation and unemployment became pressing issues in Japan. Many intellectuals were concerned about the social and economic hardships caused by these problems and advocated solving them through emigration. The prominent journalist and professor of geography at the Tokyo Senmon Gakko (presently Waseda University), Shiga Shigetaka (I863-1927), believed that Hawai'i was an ideal migration destination for the unemployed and impoverished Japanese.
