The Japanese in Argentina live mainly Pablo Nouges city in the capital of Buenos Aires where there is a temple and in La Plata Partido. Their religions are Buddhism and Shintoism while some are Catholics. There are a few among them who are Evangelicals. They speak Japanese and Spanish. The Japanese have mixed a lot with Europeans and now many are not pure Japanese.
The Japanese began coming to Argentina early in the twentieth century and were from Okinawa and Kagoshima. Before World War Two, the Japanese worked in business and other work such as in factories. During the war Argentina was neutral for a time, meaning there was little trouble for the Japanese here. Later on in the war for about two years there was a ban on Japanese meetings and newspapers among other restrictions.
In the 1960s and after, more Japanese came to live in Argentina. The financial opportunities in agriculture caused many Japanese to want to live here. In Buenos Aires there are Japanese associations and language schools and there is also the Buenos Aires Japanese gardens.
