Listen to a podcast episode about the first recorded Japanese person to have settled in Australia, Rikinosuke Sakuragawa, featuring Nikkei Australia members. Please note that our group Nikkei Australia has been mistakenly referred to as ‘Nikkei’ in this episode, and also defined as an organisation of people of Japanese descent, which is incorrect. Our organisation is called Nikkei Australia (Nikkei means Japanese diaspora), and we welcome and include all people, not just people of Japanese descent. We have contacted SBS to rectify these errors.
In this episode, the voices of Nikkei Australia members Steve Dawson, one of our founding members Dr Yuriko Nagata, and Nikkei Australia chair Elysha Rei are featured.
