Nikkei Matsuri Festival
April 23, 2017
9:30am to 4:00pm

The Nikkei Matsuri (Japanese American Festival) in San Jose Japantown embraces the local community's love and appreciation of Japanese-American Culture and Heritage.

In 1976, as part of America's Bicentennial celebration, the City of San Jose encouraged local ethnic communities to sponsor festivals to share their culture. The Japanese-American community responded with a successful festival which is now, the Nikkei Matsuri in San Jose Japantown.
