This paper examines the effects of transnational ism, resulting in a deterritorialization of people and commodities caused by Appadurai' s five dimensions of global cultural flows: ethnoscapes, technoscapes,jinancescapes, mediascapes, and ideoscapes. The Japan-Brazil phenomenon is the main focus of the paper, explaining the Japan-Brazil migrant situation and other related transnational movements. Finally, the paper applies the case of Japan and Brazil to Appadurai 's global theory.
