Photo interpretation of this landmark in Japantown, San Francisco, California, USA (texture layer added)
California Japanese American Civil Liberties Council:
The CJACLC’s California Japantown Preservation Committee coordinated the development of a landmark honoring the history and heritage of ethnic Japanese neighborhoods. The design process involved the communities of the California’s three remaining Japantowns in San Francisco, San Jose and Los Angeles’s Little Tokyo.
Each landmark stands 9 feet high and weighs over 1,000 lbs. Its three faces depict the Issei pioneers, the WWII internment experience and current community life.
The landmark was funded by the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program with additional resources from Proposition 40 historical and cultural heritage preservation funds.
