The Nikkei Centre offers an exclusive and unique venue for special events.  Located on the corner of Kingsway & Sperling in Burnaby, our signature building was conceived by architects Raymond & Jason Moriyama, renowned for high-quality, sustainable and award winning design, together with talented project architect Ken Takeuchi.  The Centre is fronted by a beautiful Japanese and Canadian garden maintained by the Vancouver Japanese Gardener’s Association.  We provide free underground parking, and our well-appointed multi-purpose function spaces and professional staff can help make your event a success.
