Japanese-American Historical Plaza

Japanese-American Historical Plaza Review

Take a moment to study the evocative figures cast into the bronze columns at the plaza's entrance; they show Japanese and Japanese-Americans before, during, and after World War II—living daily life, fighting in battle for the United States, and marching off to internment camps. Simple blocks of granite carved with haiku poems describing the war experience powerfully evoke this dark episode in American history.
