Emerging of An Indian Community in Tokyo: A Case Study of Nishikasai

Sawa Munenori and Minamino Takeshi,
Emerging of An Indian Community in Tokyo: A Case Study of Nishikasai
The Indian Geographical Journal 82 (1) June 2007; published in June 2008



Indian Diaspora has a long history and with the recent globalization, they are found settling down in many parts of the world including Japan.
The present paper looks into how the Indian residents create the living space as ‘own space’, taking a case study of one of the well-known areas for dominant presence of Indians, Nishikasai, in Tokyo.
Now about 17000 Indians reside in Japan, and in Tokyo alone about 6400 Indians live. With families joining the single engineers of 1990s, social network outside the work place started strengthening in 2000s, leading to formation of an Indian community.
The global network of internet seems to shape ethnic identity and ‘own place’, more quickly and strongly. A number of social organizations and religious facilities got developed for Indians. Indian festivals like New Year, Holy, Diwali and Dusserah are organized. Indian schools with English medium have been set up. It appears that besides religion and mother tongue, idea of nationality seems to have provided more-needed threshold for getting together and feeling themselves as community.
