The Vancouver LEGO Club is excited to be working with the Nikkei Place Foundation in bringing our interpretations of Japanese culture and heritage to their Nikkei Matsuri: The Heart of Nikkei. One of the structures we are currently building for this event is the famous Skytree Tower. As well you’ll see a Japanese pagoda or castle scene, and who knows even Godzilla might make an appearance.
What is Nikkei Matsuri?
Nikkei Matsuri: The Heart of Nikkei is coming! It’s the first time we are running this Japanese children and family festival at Nikkei Place.
On August 31 and September 1, Nikkei Place will host Nikkei Matsuri: The Heart of Nikkei. Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre will be transformed into an indoor Japanese festival that will be divided into a kids zone – full of Japanese cultural games – and performance hall – where we will have Japanese food, vendors and performances.
At Nikkei Matsuri: The Heart of Nikkei we want to recognize the cultural significance of Japanese Immigrants’ contribution to the Nikkei Community. We also want to share Japanese culture with all Canadians. We hope to give all an authentic Japanese experience without visiting Japan!
