  • I've lived in DC for 10+ years and haven't given this memorial much time until it was part of a justice walk I did. It's a stone's throw from Union Station and pays respect to the Japanese-Americans affected by World War II. It honor the 120,000 Japenese-Americans who were sent to camps on the West Coast during World War II. It does mention the Japanese-Americans who fought in the war for the USA as well. Definitely take time to read the signs as you walk through the park. It's well maintained and clean.
  • Such a tranquil and beautiful monument well worth taking the time to enjoy.
  • Preserving a very dark, but important part of our American history. These stories need to be preserved and told again and again as to not be repeated. This memorial does that, exactly.
  • Nice memorial for the Japanese-Americans who fought in the World War II.
  • Beautiful space. Calm and tranquil even though it is right next to a busy street.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.
