The Nikkei Cultural Society of Lethbridge and Area is a non-profit organization whose interests include preserving the history of Japanese settlement in southern Alberta, as well as exploring aspects of traditional Japanese arts, crafts and culture.

Lethbridge is a city of 85,000 in the southern part of Alberta, Canada. The first Japanese immigrants arrived in southern Alberta in the late 1800s and early 1900s.



  1. We were wondering where we could get more information on the June 20-24th tour into BC (New Denver, Kaslo). We will be in BC, halfway between Fernie and Cranbrook at that time. We were wondering if the bus would stop at Jaffery both going and returning from the pricipal sites. We would like to join such a tour, tour costs to be paid by credit card. How soon do we have to book in order to have a reasonable chance to get on the tour? Any and all additonal info would be appreciated.

  2. Don’t forget to contact Pastor George Takashima in Lethbridge to book seats on the 4th Annual “Ghost Town Tour” June 17th-21/2013, featuring Nelson, Castlegar, New Denver, Kaslo, Ainsworth Hot Springs. Deadline approaching. Limited seating & hotel rooms. Tour also include many meals.

  3. I have a book shelf full of Japanese books that I don’t read anymore and am looking for homes for them. I’ve heard the public library will throw those away. Any idea would be appreciated.

    • Hi Toshi
      Depending on how many and what titles we might be able to store them in our storage unit.

      • I wonder if my colleague Gideon Fujiwara, on faculty in History at UofL, might be interested? He can be reached at the university on their directory.

      • I will get hold of Mr. Fujikawa. Thank you for your help.

  4. I would like you guys to have a look if you can take it. Please let me know the location and hours.
