Description:

Relief columns grace the formal entrance of this solemn site located at the south end of the Japanese Memorial at Waterfront Park. The plaza recalls the 110,000 Japanese-Americans who were put in internment camps during World War II, and the broken stones represent the broken dreams of these people. Although the stroll or bike ride is a sobering journey, the year-round beauty of the memorial is a testament that we may still learn from our mistakes.
