The Japanese who came to Santa Clara in the early 20th Century came to work in agriculture. They performed stoop labor in picking crops such as strawberries and cauliflower. They settled around Heinlenville (San Jose's Chinatown) creating a Japantown which is locally called "Nihonmachi" or "J Town". It is bounded by First Street to the west, 8th Street to the east, Jackson Street to the south and Taylor Street to the north. San Jose's Japantown is California's only Japantown which reformed after internment in the exact previous location.
