Barangay Mintal, Davao City: The Little Tokyo of Prewar Philippines, 1900-1942

Evelina E. Ayson, Andrea V. Campado




This paper is a modest attempt to chronicle the events in prewar Davao, focusing on Barangay Mintal. Essentially a sociohistorical study, this paper recounts local history as well as the social processes of migration, adaptation, and political economic transformation resulting from the activities of a foreign migrant group in the area—the Japanese. Accounts are largely based on available literature and the experiences of selected men and women who have lived through the said period.
