Event Description

 Eric Stanley, the curator for Journey to Fountaingrove: From Feudal Japan to California Utopia, will give a talk about the life of Kanaye Nagasawa and the many connections between Japan, Scotland, New York and Santa Rosa.


In 1865 during the Tokugawa shogunate, any attempt to leave Japan was punishable by death. Despite that, on April 17, 1865, a thirteen-year-old boy, boarded a ship along with fourteen other young Japanese students and set sail bound for Europe. The young boy was Kanaye Nagasawa and his departure from Japan was the first step on a remarkable journey that would lead him from the world of the Samurai to the California utopian community at Fountaingrove. 

Joining elements of Japanese history with some of the essential stories of Sonoma County, Eric Stanley will touch on several important and sometimes under-recognized themes. These include utopian experimentation in California and the important legacy of Nagasawa as not only one of the earliest Japanese immigrants to the US, but an important vintner in the emergence of California’s wine industry and supporter of Japanese immigrants.
