DE MARCO, Celeste. Japanese Agricultural Colonization in Argentina: A Study of Two Cases in Buenos Aires Province (1950-1960). Migr. Inter [online]. 2016, vol.8, n.4, pp.137-165. ISSN 2594-0279.

This paper represents a contribution to the knowledge about the experience of the Japanese community in rural areas of Argentina, particularly Buenos Aires (state) across the first half of the 20th century. With the objective of updating knowledge about this subject, a comparison was made between communities in peri-urban agricultural colonies: La Capilla, located in Florencio Varela, and Justo José de Urquiza, La Plata. We also focus on the origins, incursions, productive profiles, and the level of participation of Argentine and/or Japanese entities that influenced how each community developed, as well as successful companies and migrant settlement.

Keywords : immigration; Japan; colonization; Buenos Aires; periurban.
