Sachi Braden is Hawaii’s most successful Japanese real estate broker. Born and raised in Osaka, Sachi left her native Japan at age 21 to become a flight attendant for Pan American Airways. She flew monthly around the world on Pan Am’s fabled Route One—which gave her a unique multicultural and cosmopolitan approach to understanding the entire globe. After marrying an American husband and raising her son in the U.S., Ms. Braden got a divorce, remarried another American in Hawaii, and began her phenomenally successful real estate career earning millions running Sachi Hawaii Pacific Century Properties. Her new book combines her life experiences to provide an overview for other Japanese desirous of traveling to, or residing in, America to learn about everything from immigration, employment and investment basics to travel tips. Special sections are focused on food, drink, fun and even romance. The chapter “Being Japanese in Hawaii” includes everything from understanding Hawaiiana to education opportunities, to real estate investing, to marriage and child rearing. Informative and highly readable, Being Japanese in America has proven to be an indispensable guide for any Japanese nationals seeking to travel to, or live in, America.
