Shibata Garden

Symbolically and historically meaningful, this garden was often the venue for summer barbecues held by the Go-For-Broke, 100/442nd and Military Intelligence Service (MIS) veterans prior to their transformation into NJAHS. From these humble beginnings, NJAHS has become a national resource whose mission is to interpret the breadth of Japanese American experiences.

Today, NJAHS stands on the brink of a new level of development and expansion at the San Francisco Presidio. Our new project, Building 640, will expand our audience as we tell our stories to visitors eager to learn about Japanese American history on the West Coast. The seeds planted in Shibata Garden twenty-two years ago have taken root to yield a bountiful harvest in the twenty-first century.
