California Japantowns - Exploring the preservation of history, culture, and community...

Sacramento

Sacramento’s Japantown was destroyed by WWII evacuation and urban redevelopment projects of the 1950s and ‘60s. In 1940, Sacramento Japantown held over 3,400 residents who operated 79 hotels, 44 community organizations, 31 restaurants, 26 markets, 15 barber shops, 14 laundries, and over 255 other businesses. With only 5% of the pre-WWII structures remaining, the Nisei Veterans Hall and Japanese American Civil Liberties historic monument modestly stands at 1515 4th Street, hidden behind the looming Capitol Mall.
