Sharing and preserving Japanese American history and culture in Portland’s Old Town neighborhood, where Japantown once thrived.
Formerly known as the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center, the Japanese American Museum of Oregon at Naito Center is a venue for culture and research as well as an invaluable resource for exploring Nikkei experiences and their role in Oregon’s multicultural community. Our permanent exhibit space highlights Issei immigration and early life in Oregon, Nihonmachi (Japantown), life after Executive Order 9066 (including the Portland Assembly Center), and contemporary Nikkei life.
Join the movement to preserve and honor the history and culture of Japanese Americans in the Pacific Northwest.
