The gentlemen`s agreement of 1907 (1907) was an informal agreement between the United States of America and the Japanese Empire, according to which the United States would not impose restrictions on Japanese immigration and Japan would no longer allow emigration to the United States. The aim was to ease tensions between the two Pacific nations. The agreement was never ratified by the U.S. Congress and replaced by the Immigration Act of 1924. A year later, concessions were agreed in a score of six points. The agreement was followed by the reception of students of Japanese origin in public schools.
