Alejandro Higa, a farmer of Japanese descent born in 1948, has lived all his life in the neighborhood. Unlike the majority of residents in El Ayllu who didn’t purchase their land, Higa has a property title for his acreage and says what the government is offering him is unfair. As of mid-March Higa and his wife had not left their home, but the rest of the residents are gone. For decades dozens of families of Japanese descent grew produce and ran a destination market for the area. Higa’s farm is the last in Callao.
