Creatifying Japantown: Envisioning and Mapping a Vibrant 21st Century Community
A special afternoon exhibit and engagement featuring nine contemporary thematic maps of Japantown, San Jose.

"Please join us for a special afternoon exhibit featuring a series of nine thematic maps depicting contemporary Japantown. In collaboration with the Japanese American Museum San Jose, these maps were created by the students of Geography 135 at San Jose State University (taught by Dr. Kathrine Richardson).

The series examines many of the unique elements of Japantown, and where this special neighborhood might be headed in the future. The students will give a brief presentation of each map between 2:13 p.m. and 3 p.m. From 3 to 4 p.m., the students will be able to discuss and engage with community members regarding the continued development of their maps.

For more information, please contact Dr. Kathrine Richardson, Course Instructor, at , or Dr. Stephen Fugita, JAMsj Board of Directors, at .
This collaborative event was made possible by the Student Success Program Grant, Provost's Office, San Jose State University."
