The Javanese ethnics are among the largest population group in Johor. According to the history, they came
to Johor as part of the suggestion and efforts by Temenggong Daing Ibrahim (1810-1862) when they opened the
Gambir plantation in Johor back in 1830s after the failure of Gambir companies in Singapore due to lack of land area
and fire-wood fuel. The main reason to bring the Javanese and Chinese workers or coolies to operate the Gambir
plantation was through the kankar system which he introduced. Data and information were collected from interview
with Javanese and books, as well as from journals and websites. The increase of Javanese population is due to their
growth and increase of number of labour in Malaysia. Their present may cause several challenges including social
and cultural identity. This study aim to understand the fundamental Javanese character and identity, how this identity
has been integrated and blended into the Malays culture, and finally to identify the Javanese characters and identity
that contribute to the changes in the local culture. The study found that the high tolerances and adaptability of the
Javanese has contributed to the acceptance and social harmony to the existing ethnics in Johor.
