San Jose Japantown Walking Tours
Did you know that San Jose's Japantown is one of only three surviving Japantowns in the United States? Did you know that it is the only Japantown in its original location? Let a JAMsj docent take you around to all the historic sites, from the Issei Memorial Building (a former Japanese hospital) to the Buddhist Church (parts of which served as a temporary shelter for Japanese Americans after they were released from the internment camps).
