Tour Description

Tour Host: Nichola Ogiwara

On this historical tour of Powell St. we will take you back in time to the pre-war, bustling community of Japanese Canadians who lived and worked in this area.

The area grew and thrived over a fifty-year period from the 1890s to its abrupt end with the internment of Japanese Canadians during World War 2 in 1942.

Tour Host Bio

Organizer

Jane's Walk

Jane's Walk is held simultaneously in cities across Canada and other countries around the world. Inspired by Jane Jacob's and her belief that in order to know your city "you have to get out and walk," Jane's Walk is a simple idea. It is free, it connects people and builds communities by promoting urban literacy and citizen engagement.
