Spam musubi, sukiyaki, "weenie royale" (shoyu hot dogs), sashimi, tofu pork stew, kare (curry) rice, spaghetti sandwich, okayu . . . What do Japanese Americans eat at home, and how has this changed over time?

 The bombing of Pearl Harbor, the signing of Executive Order 9066 -- to say that these events significantly changed the lives of Japanese Americans would be an understatement. But how did all this impact the eating habits of Japanese Americans (JAs)? What did JAs eat before, during, and after WWII?

JAMsj invites you to join us for group discussion as the community shares memories and thoughts on the topic of what JAs eat and how it has changed over time. This moderated discussion will feature special guests from the JA community and plenty of opportunities for audience participation.

Participants are invited to bring a favorite nostalgic dish to sample or come with just your fond memories. Either way, we hope you will join us for what promises to be a lively discussion, full of shared memories; personal stories; and friends, both old and new.

Cost: Free with admission to the museum (nonmembers, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free). 
Please contact or call (408) 294-3138 to reserve a spot.
