VJLS is proud to present the new Historic Powell Street Walking Tours that are starting this August.

Learn about the hidden history of the thriving Japanese-Canadian historic neighbourhood community prior to World War II, the strength displayed by Japanese Canadians during internment, and the resilient Downtown Eastside community of today.

To ensure the safety of all participants, we will be practicing social distancing and limiting registration to a maximum of 8 people. Tours will happen every Saturday and Thursday throughout August and begin in front of the VJLS Heritage Wing at 475 Alexander Street, Vancouver, BC.

Admission for the walking tour is by a suggested donation of $15.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Irene Zhang at communityprogramming@vjls-jh.com.


Photos and videos of participants will also be taken during the tour. Please complete the following Photo Release Form.
