Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre
The Nikkei Centre offers an exclusive and unique venue for special events. Located on the corner of Kingsway and Sperling in Burnaby, our signature building was conceived by architects Raymond & Jason Moriyama, renowned for high-quality, sustainable and award winning design, together with talented project architect Ken Takeuchi. The centre is fronted by a beautiful Japanese and Canadian garden maintained by the Vancouver Japanese Gardener's Association. Officially opened on September 22, 2000, the Centre houses a Japanese Canadian cultural centre, the Nikkei National Museum and a community centre serving the neighbourhood. Our mandate is to promote a better understanding and appreciation of Japanese Canadian culture and heritage; and an awareness 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.
