About the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm Colony Pilgrimage. 
Join us for our third biennial pilgrimage to the site of the first large settlement of Japanese in America, which was established 154 years ago. A national and state historic landmark, the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm Colony was established June 8, 1869. It is also the birthplace of first Japanese American, and the grave site of the first Japanese woman buried in the U.S., Okei.

This year’s pilgrimage is a rare opportunity to learn about the storied history of this colony led by John Schnell and former samurai from Aizu- Wakamatsu, present-day Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. Participants can trace their own roots through family history consultations with volunteers from the California Genealogical Society.

Event Highlights
• Bus and bento packages from San Jose, San Francisco, East Bay and Sacramento
• Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm Colony tours and exhibits, including the Okei gravesite and Graner House Museum
• Recognizing descendants of Wakamatsu colonist Kuninosuke Masumizu
• FREE Family History Consultations with California Genealogical Society volunteers
• Newly-installed monuments, and MORE!
• Bon Odori dancing to honor ancestors and pioneers
• Post-Wakamatsu trip to Ikeda's Markets in Davis on the way home for San Francisco, East Bay and San Jose buses ONLY!
