The Japanese-American community in the Yuba-Sutter area has a long history, which is celebrated at the Japanese Obon Festival in Marysville each July.


From 1913 to 1952, the Alien Land Law prevented Japanese immigrants from owning land in California. During World War II, many Japanese-Americans in California (even children with as little as one eighth Japanese ancestry) were forcibly removed from their homes and locked in Japanese American internment camps. Internment was popular among many white farmers, who saw internment as a convenient means of eliminating Japanese-American farmers from their competition.
