Join us in celebrating the legacy of Japanese woodworking through Japanese, or Japanese- American made objects that are functional, artistic, and sometimes a bit of both.

The exhibition chronicles the evolution of Japanese American woodworking from the functional objects made in the pre WWII era, through their refinement during the internment camp experience, to post-war artistic woodworks that reflect the aesthetically motivated use of traditional skills. This exhibition pays homage to San Diego’s Japanese American woodworkers and the stories they left behind through their craft. Pieces from local collections including handmade tools made by the woodworkers to create the objects are included in the exhibition.

The Japanese Friendship Garden is excited to once again invite the Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego to exhibit at the Garden. The JAHSSD recognizes the contributions Japanese Americans have made to the San Diego region by preserving and making available artifacts, photographs, and other information chronicling their history and experiences.
