Nekketsu Takei’s Japanese Maps of Hawaiʻi

When Nekketsu Takei (1879–1961) traveled by steamship to Honolulu in late 1903, he was one of hundreds of migrants on board escaping economic hardships in rural Japan for employment opportunities in Hawaiʻi. Three years later he produced maps of Hawaiʻi to attract Japanese immigrants as well as to help newcomers familiarize themselves with the islands. The Huntington holds two of Takei’s maps as part of its Pacific Rim collections.
