Please join us on a fun and educational excursion to the Japanese American National Museum located in the Little Tokyo area near downtown Los Angeles!
We’ll plan on meeting at Lighthouse at 9:30am and then car pool to the Museum and then we’ll be given a tour of one of the signature exhibits – Common Ground: The Heart of Community which incorporates hundreds of objects, documents, and photographs collected by the Japanese American National Museum which chronicles 130 years of Japanese American history, beginning with the early days of the Issei pioneers through the World War II incarceration to the present. Among the notable artifacts on display is a Heart Mountain barracks, an original structure saved and preserved fro the concentration camp in Wyoming.
After the Common Ground guided tour, we’ll also be able to check out the other fun and beautiful exhibits that are currently available.
We will also plan on having lunch in Little Tokyo so that we can walk around and enjoy the shops and the fun ambience of this historical area.
The cost for the museum tour and entry will be $5.00 for those above 62 years of age (regular price $10). Everyone will be responsible for their own lunch costs. Depending upon the number of individuals will determine how we will plan for lunch accommodations.
If you have any questions please contact Bill or Loris Hirokawa or Kenny Tsuruda.
