  • A stunning reminder that freedom can be taken away at the pure whim of a people that are afraid. The park is peaceful, stunning really with the craftsmanship of the buildings. Hard to believe what happened to the Japanese Americans here. A absolute must stop and read on our countries history. We as a nation cannot make this mistake ever again...
  • Well worth a visit. I admired all the constructions, Japanese woodwork on a very high level. Just wood pegs that holds the intricate framing together. Also must acknowledge the very nice Park Ranger that gave us a much broader info and answered questions.
