  1. FYI, Vancouver’s sister city is Yokohama, we too have a small thriving Japanese Canadian community. In culminates in the Powell Street Festival (Aug 5) here, you can Google it. It is a neighbourhood of the city where Japanese settled in the past. I have attended the fest every year since the 80s. BC, sadly, has a regrettable history given the years of internment for Japanese during the war years. The government did provide a financial redress for individuals, my father included, who were effected by the internment.

      1. Yes, all the good parts haha. Mum is British by birth, Dad is Japanese. I was involved in the community more in the past, and speak, sad to say, almost no Japanese, nor my many cousins. I have yet to be to Japan, nor my father, who is in his nineties now. OTOH been to England many times. I love Miyazaki and Coronation Street, don’t judge ha! ha!
