Nikkei Place comprises Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre (Nikkei Centre), Nikkei Seniors Health Care & Housing Society (Robert Nimi Nikkei Home), and the Nikkei Place Foundation. These organizations are each non-profit societies and charitable organizations, with unique mandates; but we all work together as part of the Nikkei Place family, which also contains the gorgeous Nikkei Garden.
Nikkei Place is home to community organizations and businesses that operate and have offices at Nikkei Centre and Robert Nimi Nikkei Home: Gladstone Japanese Language School, Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadian Citizens' Association, Hi Genki Japanese Restaurant, and Suzuya Japanese Market.
