Land of Joy and Sorrow: Japanese Pioneers in the Yakima Valley
Photos from the May 25, 2013 Japanese Pioneers Reunion are avaiable here.
This exhibition traces the story of the Japanese families who settled in the Yakima Valley and made a new life in a new land. It also chronicles the forced relocation of these families to Heart Mountain, Wyoming in 1942, and their re-emergence as a community in the Yakima Valley after
World War II.
Kumamoto Kenjikai of Seattle made the trip to Yakima in order to see the Land of Joy and Sorrow exhibit.
