Register here, $15
Explore Vancouver’s historic Japanese Canadian district, centered around Powell Street with Laura Saimoto, Board member of the Vancouver Japanese Language School and Japanese Hall (VJLS-JH). Re-imagine the pre-war Japanese Canadian neighbourhood and see current changes in the Downtown Eastside. The route will end with a look inside the Heritage Award-winning VJLS-JH, built in 1928. The building has unique significance as the only property returned to Japanese Canadian ownership after the World War II Internment. After the tour, stay to enjoy the ‘Emerging Heritage Fair’, part of the site’s 90th anniversary celebrations and hosted in conjunction with Heart of the City Festival.
