Domoto Nursery

The first Domoto Nursery was started by brothers Kanetaro and Takanoshin Domoto in 1885 at a small plot at 3rd and Grove (Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr.) streets in Oakland. Two additional brothers, Motonoshin and Mitsunoshin came to the U.S. to join the nursery by 1890. They operated this nursery until 1892 when they moved and expanded to a nursery on E.14th St.
