Chapter Summary

The first section of this chapter examines the trends in Japanese arrivals in Australia, with special attention to post-Second World War movements. More recent migration movements, related to the significant developments in multi-lateral relationships between the two countries, are described in the second section, the relevance of this research has emerged with the dramatic rise in the number of Japanese settler arrivals since the 1980s. In the third section, a comparison between temporary and permanent status of Japanese residents and an examination of their attitudes towards naturalisation is presented. The last section shows the characteristics of the long-term and permanent movements of Japanese people by analysing their arrivals and departures data. Australia was chosen for Japanese pensioners because there they would relish the environmental and living conditions which they could not enjoy in Japan.

Keywords: Australia; Japanese people; pensioner migrants; permanent residents; post-Second World War movements; temporary residents
