Vancouver East Burnaby Japanese Garden

nikkeigarden0036

Nikkei Centre is a multi-use facility at the corner of Kingsway and Sperling in Burnaby, BC. Officially opened on September 22, 2000, the Centre houses a Japanese Canadian cultural centre, the Nikkei National Museum, a community centre serving the neighbourhood, and a Japanese Canadian garden.

 

 

Our mandate is to promote a better understanding and appreciation by all Canadians of Japanese Canadian culture and heritage; and an awareness by all Canadians of the contribution of Japanese Canadians to Canadian society, through public programs, exhibits, services, publications, public use of the facilities and special events.

Our mission is to honour, preserve, and share Japanese Canadian history and culture for a better Canada.

In addition to offering its own programs, Nikkei Centre has a number of rooms available for rent for many purposes including meetings, demonstrations, weddings, receptions, small conferences, and other special events.

Nikkei Centre is run primarily by volunteers, with a 22-member Board of Directors, an active Auxiliary Committee, and several board/volunteer committees (Finance, Communications, Human Resources, Membership, Building, Programs, Museum). We have a small but dedicated team of staff who work on the operations of the organization.
