Honouring an important history.
A colourful and immersive west coast fishing village sets the scene for visitors to explore the history and positive contributions of the Ryoshi—Japanese Canadian fishermen—to BC’s fishing industry. Artfully suspended nets and ropes, a portion of a replicated fishing boat, re-created building facades, and a rich collection of artefacts and archival photos come together to tell the resilient tale of BC’s Japanese Canadian community before, during and after the Second World War.
