This website and the historic panels in Hastings Park were developed by a coalition of Japanese Canadian community groups and individuals to acknowledge the experiences of Japanese Canadians at Hastings Park in 1942. The committee represents Japanese Canadian organizations and individuals who would like to make sure public education about Japanese Canadian history in Hastings Park is effectively presented during the current and future redevelopment of Hastings Park.
Individuals on the Committee are: Jean Kamimura, Walt Kamimura, Dan Tokawa, Leslie Komori. Organizations represented on the Committee are: Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadian Citizens’ Association (GVJCCA), Japanese Community Volunteers Association (Tonari Gumi), Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre, Vancouver Japanese Language School & Japanese Hall, Powell Street Festival Society and Vancouver Japanese Gardeners Association.
Website and panels designed by John Endo Greenaway, Big Wave Design. The City of Vancouver produced and installed the historic panels.
