Japanese immigration to Mexico began in the last decade of the 19th century with a coffee growing project, and proved a failure. Subsequent attempts of sending contract labour migrants by emigration agencies, which involved 10 000 Japanese emigrants in 1901-1908, were also unsuccessful, and Mexico turned into a short step for Japanese immigrants on their way to the US. The evolution of those who remained in Mexico and the development of Japanese communities in Mexico is analyzed until the period after WWII.
