(Background and title picture) picture bride—a woman whose marriage is arranged by family members through photo exchange. Hana carries a photograph of the man she is goig to marry but has not met him yet. Japanese Americans forced to live in internment camps (camp in Utah in 1943); because Japan bombed the U.S. Navy at Pearl Harbor, so they declared war on Japan, but they feared that the Japanese Americans would work as spies for Japan. Hana arrives in San Francisco in 1917 She is heading toward Taro Takeda, who she promised to marry although she has never met him. Taro lives in Oakland. Their marriage has been arranged through Taro’s uncle and Hana’s parents.

Hana wanted to get out of the drudgeries of becoming a Japanese farmer’s wife.

Taro is ten years older than Hana and allegedly the owner of a thriving business. Hana is excited to meet him but when she does she is disappointed because he is different from his pictures, but still she marries him. "Picture Bride Summary." BookRags. BookRags, 2012.

Theme Culture Clash a story of culture clash as experienced by the protagonist, Hana, in her coming-of-age adventures as she adjusts to living in the United States. In California, Hana finds that everything about her seems to be out of place. Her clothes are all wrong; her language is not understood; even the smell of her favorite foods annoys others. Her intelligence is belittled because she speaks a foreign language and cannot fully express herself, and her fine Japanese graces are mocked because they are different from American manners. Everything that she has learned, everything that she has cherished about her Japanese culture comes under suspicion in the United States. "Picture Bride." Enotes.com. Enotes.com, 2012.

It is some time in November of 1917, and Hana has decided to leave her village of Oka for a new life in the United States What I liked / didn't like I liked how Hana and Taro actually had worked out.
