    Background: BRAZIL, THE LARGEST COUNTRY ON THE SOUTH AMERICAN CONTINENT HAS NOW THE LARGEST JAPANESE COMMUNITY EXISTING OUTSIDE JAPAN. MORE THAN SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND JAPANESE CITIZENS AND THEIR DESCENDANTS FORM THE BIGGEST RACIAL MINORITY GROUP IN THE COUNTRY. TWO-THIRDS OF THEM LIVE IN THE SAO PAULO STATE, ESPECIALLY IN THE DISTRICT KNOWN AS "THE JAPANESE GARDENS" IN SAO PAULO CITY.

    THE JAPANESE COMMUNITY HAS NOT YET MADE A GREAT IMPACT ON THE COUNTRY. LESS THAN A QUARTER OF THEM HAVE BEEN BORN IN BRAZIL AND ALL OF THEM STICK TOGETHER IN A CLOSELY-KNIT COMMUNITY. HOWEVER THE ECONOMY OF BRAZIL IS BEGINNING TO REFLECT THE INCREASE IN THE JAPANESE POPULATION. THE JAPANESE COMMUNITY ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FINANCING OF ABOUT THIRTY LARGE INDUSTRIAL CONCERNS IN THE COUNTRY -- RANGING FROM THE PRODUCTION OF FISHING TACKLE TO HEAVY MACHINERY. THERE ARE FOUR JAPANESE BANKS, NINE EXPORT-IMPORT COMPANIES, THREE JAPANESE-LANGUAGE NEWSPAPERS, A JAPANESE RADIO STATION AND SEVERAL JAPANESE CINEMAS. IN SAO PAULO THERE ARE A LARGE NUMBER OF JAPANESE RESTAURANTS, SEVERAL OF WHICH INCLUDE TRADITIONAL JAPANESE TEAHOUSES AND GEISHA GIRLS.

    SEVERAL LARGE AGRICULTURAL CO-OPERATIVES RUN BY JAPANESE FARMERS SUPPLY MOST OF THE FRESH FRUIT AND VEGETABLES FOR THE RIO DE JANIERO AND SAO PAULO MARKETS.

    THE IMMIGRATION OF JAPANESE INTO BRAZIL HAS BEEN DATED FROM 1908 -- BUT IT HAS JUMPED SHARPLY SINCE 1945. HOWEVER IT WAS NOT UNTIL 1954 THAT THE JAPANESE MADE ANY SIGNIFICANT INVESTMENTS IN THE COUNTRY. TODAY ABOUT THIRTY-FIVE PER CENT OF JAPAN'S FOREIGN INVESTMENT COMES TO BRAZIL.

    INTO THE SPORTING LIFE OF BRAZIL THE JAPANESE HAVE INTRODUCED BASEBALL -- BUT THEY HAVE ALSO LEARNT THE BRAZILIAN NATIONAL SPORT, SOCCER.

    INTERMARRIAGE BETWEEN THE IMMIGRANT JAPANESE AND THE BRAZILIAN POPULATION IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE COMMON AND ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE JAPANESE RETAIN THEIR BUDDHIST BELIEFS, SOME HAVE ACCEPTED ROMAN CATHOLICISM AND BEEN RECEIVED INTO THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH.

    THE JAPANESE HAVE PROVIDED A BOOST TO BRAZILIAN AGRICULTURE THAT HAS HITHERTO BEEN LACKING. THE TRADITIONAL BRAZILIAN PEASANT'S LACK OF SKILL HAS BEEN ATTRIBUTED TO A SOCIAL SYSTEM THAT HAS LEFT HIM UNTRAINED AND ILLITERATE. THE JAPANESE ON THE OTHER HAND HAVE CENTURIES OF AGRICULTURAL EXPERIENCE AT THEIR BACKS -- AN ADVANTAGE THAT THE BRAZILIAN'S CONCEDE. A BRAZILIAN GOVERNOR SAID A FEW WEEKS AGO THAT ONE JAPANESE DOES IN ONE DAY WHAT HIS BRAZILIAN COUNTERPART DOES IN TWENTY ....
