Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tucked between the Vancouver Aquarium and Lumberman’s Arch the Canadian Japanese War Memorial in Stanley park stands beneath the blossoming sakura as a quiet reminder. Here are some Flickr photos of this reminder.

The memorial is in honor of Japanese Canadians that served Canada in the first World War and was dedicated April 2, 1920.

    Oh wow, I’d completely forgotten about this war memorial. I’ll have to try and find it the next time I’m back in the Park.

    Hi Rebecca – you’re doing a great job. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Love the alphabet thing. Hang in there.
