Question on how to obtain information from pages 286 and 287 from the 1971 book "日本人メキシコ移住史"[編集]

@Zerabat: Dear JAwiki users, I am highly interested in obtaining Nihon-jin mekishiko ijūshi (日本人メキシコ移住史; "The History of the Japanese Immigrants in Mexico") by Minoru Izawa. The citation here:

  • "Minoru, Izawa〔ママ〕, Nihon-jin mekishiko ijushi (The History of the Japanese Immigrants in Mexico). Tokyo: 1971."

Page 225 of the same book says the info is in pages 286 and 287.

The claim in question sourced to this book is:

  • "However, one Japanese source estimates that roughly 80 percent of the Japanese were forcibly relocated to Mexico City with the largest coming from Baja California.11"

Thank you, WhisperToMe会話) 2019年8月20日 (火) 01:36 (UTC)

CiNii had the record here: specifying the title as "日本人メキシコ移住史" (published 1971), attributed to 日本人メキシコ移住史編纂委員会.

I'd really appreciate it if someone figures out how to find this. WhisperToMe会話) 2019年8月20日 (火) 01:41 (UTC)

@WhisperToMe: I found Tokyo Metropolitan Library had it. Tokyo Metropolitan Library offers reference services by letters or email. --ねをなふみそね会話) 2019年9月6日 (金) 03:39 (UTC)
Thanks for the info! I do not know if it is in the "Special Literature Archives" - if not, I may have to call the library via Skype. WhisperToMe会話) 2019年9月6日 (金) 05:16 (UTC)

Update! I visited Tokyo in person and went to the Metropolitan Library; I much appreciate the work the staff did in helping me find the source! The Izawa source verifies that Japanese were sent to Mexico City and Guadalajara, but I could not verify the 80% figure. I e-mailed Jerry García (author of Looking Like the Enemy: Japanese Mexicans, the Mexican State, and US Hegemony, 1897-1945 which cites Izawa and gives the 80% figure, saying that Izawa came up with it) and asked him if maybe there's something I am missing...

Vandalism of an article of a living person: (有道出人)[編集]

Dear JAwiki editors,

An anonymous user is altering a birth name of a living person. People familiar with English will recognize the latter as a vulgarity and obvious vandalism.

Arudou is a living person, so his article needs to have the vandalism dealt with promptly with acknowledgment that this is a vulgarity in English. Thank you,

As per this page the correct name is "Schofill".

Thanks! I found there was other vandalism on Sept. 27 so I will report to the page WhisperToMe会話) 2019年10月12日 (土) 21:14 (UTC)

Factcheck request, clothing[編集]

These files are based on costume research for a play set in historical Japan. I am no expert on this subject. I would really appreciate anyone checking both images and captions for accuracy.

I first posted on the English-language Wikiproject Japan talk page, but just found this useful page. Many thanks for any improvements, or suggestions for improvements. HLHJ会話) 2019年9月20日 (金) 03:22 (UTC)

Please help[編集]

Can you please report this vandalism on my user talk (insults and threats): (利用者%E2%80%90会話:, by this user: (特別:投稿記録/NigaindiaAustraloid). His name is racist and violates Wikipedia rules. Thank you in advance!— 2019年9月24日 (火) 09:50 (UTC)

Question about published secondary sources about Holp Shuppan[編集]

Hi! I was asked to find additional published secondary sources about en:Holp Shuppan (en:Talk:Holp Shuppan), a longtime Japanese publisher. My understanding is that most of these sources are in Japanese, so I would appreciate it if someone could find good secondary sources about it.
