These two associations brought essential contributions to the spread of Japanese culture and the construction of identity of immigrants in Marilia and region. In this context, this research aims to analyze how was the development of these associations, in relation to the information culture, memory and the Japanese identity, since they were not identified studies on this contribution to that community and to Brazilians living in Marilia.
