Tomoo Handa, senior staff of the Japanese pavilion, wrote "Looking at the Japanese pavilion, the first generation Issei seemed to be moved by the scent of new wood and the simple Japaneque design, and take a fresh look of Japanese preference. On the other hand, the second generation Nisei seemed not to be moved simply by the simple beauty and modest impression of the wood construction".
