I am a member of Nikkei Australia. My great-great grandfather - Sakuragawa Rikinosuke - was the first Japanese immigrant to settle in Australia, after arriving in 1873 as a circus performer. He arrived with his seven year old adopted son, Togawa Iwakitchi, who is my bloodline. I am interested primarily in researching the Japanese origins of these ancestors.
