Your organization can get involved by sponsoring an event at Nikkei Place.
We engage with corporate sponsors at a variety of events throughout the year, connecting business objectives with charitable goodwill in the Nikkei community.
Major events include:
Thomas Shoyama Gala
Our annual spring fundraising dinner in support of future generations at Nikkei Place.
During this evening, we highlight inspiring heroes from the Japanese Canadian community through our Thomas Shoyama Lifetime Achievement Award. Past awardees include Dr. David Suzuki, Joy Kogawa, and Arthur Hara, among others.
We also support the potential of future generations by awarding our Nikkei Youth Athletics Bursary.
One of the Largest Japanese Festivals in Canada! This 2-day annual summer festival at Nikkei Centre has something for everyone, at any age, and aims to showcase the pride of Japanese culture here in Canada.
It draws in over 14,000 people, and brings all of the elements of visiting a ‘matsuri’ (festival) in Japan to our backyard here in Burnaby.
