But there were people who came along-side Nisei and befriended them, helping make their lives more comfortable in the Inland Northwest. For those Nisei who were attending colleges and universities, friends and schoolmates provided the home life they had left behind.
In addition, the Japanese community in Spokane provided social activities for those Nisei who lived in the downtown area. The Japanese Methodist Church and the Japanese American Citizens League, especially, provided venues for Nisei to meet each other and participate in activities such as dances, sports, and picnics.
