Who we are
We are an organization that is committed to preserving, promoting, and sharing Japanese and Japanese American culture and heritage. We do so by creating, funding, and supporting multicultural and inter-generational education that celebrates diversity, art, culture, and language.
We honor both the contributions and the challenges of the Pacific Northwest Issei and sei generations by offering publications, family legacy projects, and the Northwest Nikkei Museum.
