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.

    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.
