  • Great memorial. The history is fascinating. Staff was great let us check everything out near closing time. Highly recommend taking a stroll thru if your in the area
  • The Nikkei Centre is such an amazing place to learn about the infamous time of interning the Japanese during WWII. There are many primary sources to look at as well as houses set up just as they were during that time. Well worth the time to go and look around... just be sure to give yourself enough time to look at it all.
