Asian Pacific American Heritage Month: Noriya Kanemoto

In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I am profiling one Asian or Pacific Islander MP for every day of the month of May. Today’s case is Noriya Kanemoto, a 56-year-old man of Japanese descent who disappeared from his San Francisco, California home on August 29, 1984.

And unfortunately that’s basically all the information I have in this case. The only other thing I can add is that Kanemoto was born in Sacramento, California, according to He’d be 90 years old today if he’s still alive.
