A Pre-War Japanese Canadian Community

Kitsilano, or “Ki-Chi-Ra-No” to the locals, was home to the second largest Japanese Canadian community in Vancouver. From 1904-1942 over one thousand people settled here and built housing: kyabins (cabins), storefronts, a church, a Japanese Language School and a public bath. Families ran businesses, worked in the local industry, and children attended Henry Hudson Elementary.

Space is limited. Please reserve your spot in advance.
