Nice memorial! Granddaughter did report on incarceration of Japanese Americans. I like to provide experiences to supplement the information gathered. This experience did just that! more »
A stunning reminder that freedom can be taken away at the pure whim of a people that are afraid. The park is peaceful, stunning really with the craftsmanship of the buildings. Hard to believe what happened to the Japanese Americans here. A absolute must stop and read on our countries history. We as a nation cannot make this mistake ever again...
Well worth a visit. I admired all the constructions, Japanese woodwork on a very high level. Just wood pegs that holds the intricate framing together. Also must acknowledge the very nice Park Ranger that gave us a much broader info and answered questions.
A beautiful place of rememberence of such a sad time. I highly recommend it to read about the history of that time as we never knew about this event. The ranger have us great information and great recommendations of the rest of Bainbridge island. Also a beautiful view of the harbor here.
A unique perspective and experience of the evacuation and eventual return of the Japanese-Americans of Bainbridge Island. Check out the Historical Museum and Mora's!
For those interested in the history of the U.S. internment of people of Japanese ancestry, Bainbridge Island is an important part of that story. Small but signage is good. Not walking distance from the ferry dock.
