[USJC] Covidzilla vs. Japantown
In light of the 150th anniversary of the Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco, for our USJC Northern California event, we will take a walk down memory lane of the founding of two cultural and community epicenters for Japanese and Japanese Americans in Norcal – Japantown San Francisco and Japantown San Jose. In our discussion, we’ll look at how these communities developed and flourished over more than 100 years, and then at how these same communities, like many others, are confronting the ravages of Covid-19.

How do celebratory gatherings like Obon and annual Cherry Blossom Festivals find a home in the new digital paradigm? How might the original intent and spirit of Japantown in both regions thrive and flourish in a post-Covid-19 era? Join us in hearing from leaders who have dedicated their energy, passion, and vision to cultivate Japan-US bridges, celebrations, communities, and fight to overcome challenges from this new kind of threat that is redefining the cross-cultural landscapes around the world.
