Help Nikkei Centre bring people together

Cultural Programs + Special Events

Nikkei Centre is a multi-use facility run by Nikkei National Musuem & Cultural Centre. It offers a variety of Japanese cultural programs and special events throughout the year for every age and interest; it is also home to a museum, dojo, convenience store, and Japanese garden.

Every summer, Nikkei Matsuri is hosted at Nikkei Centre — one of the largest Japanese festivals in Canada! It’s a unique 2-day experience that brings all of the elements of visiting a ‘matsuri’ (festival) in Japan to our backyard here in Burnaby. Proceeds raised support Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre.
