Civic and Community Leaders Will Gather to Mark Significant Milestone in Japanese-American Community

ARLETA, Calif. — Years in the making, Nikkei Senior Gardens is now a reality. The San Fernando Valley assisted living community is celebrating its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 19, at 9221 Arleta Avenue. Distinguished guests include District Six Councilman Tony Cardenas, actress Tamlyn Tomita and Japanese Consul Hiroshi Furusawa. Following the ribbon cutting, guests can enjoy traditional Japanese food, entertainment and tours of the campus.

“The opening of this community is a significant moment for Japanese-Americans in the community,” said Allan Slight, executive director of Nikkei Senior Gardens. “Countless hours have been put into bringing this community to fruition, and we are so glad the day is finally here.” It will be especially moving for two leaders of the local Japanese community, Harold Muraoka and Harry Nakada, both of whom have worked for over a decade turning their dream of dignified living for their beloved elders into a reality.

Nikkei Senior Gardens will include 68 private assisted living apartments and 10 memory support apartments, with special care taken to ensure the residents have an active, multi-cultural experience. With enhanced quality of life and peace of mind being the community’s top priorities, the community will offer maintenance-free living, three nutritious Japanese and Western meals daily, a wide variety of social activities, fitness classes, scheduled transportation, around-the-clock staffing and more.
Residents also have convenient access to the Metro bus lines, a post office, retail stores and a major shopping center. Plus, The Japanese-American Community Center and the Nikkei Pioneer Center will be just a few short blocks away.

Another amenity that is quite unique to Nikkei Senior Gardens, and not often associated with assisted living communities, is the large Japanese-style garden. Located at the heart of the campus, the garden will be visible from several vantage points and will bring a sense of tranquility and community, adding to the overall experience and quality of life for residents.

More information is available by calling Nikkei Senior Gardens at (818) 899-1000 or by visiting the campus, located at 9221 Arleta Avenue, in Arleta, CA. For more information about Nikkei Senior Gardens, visit
