Bunka No Hi: Japan’s Culture Day
Bunka No Hi is a national holiday in Japan celebrating Japanese culture.
Bunka No Hi is a national holiday in Japan celebrating Japanese culture. It is held in November every year and each region has its own unique cultural celebration. Denver Takayama Sister Cities will be celebrating Bunka No Hi with performances and presentations by local experts in the field from the US and in Denver.
This year is a special year for Japanese American communities as we celebrate the 80th anniversary of Amache camp, also known as the Granada Relocation Center. The camp is designated as a National Historic Site this year and the stories will be told to the next generation. As part of Bunka No Hi, we have invited a special guest to tell us about the internment camp’s history and life during that time. In addition, please visit the permanent Amache exhibit on the second floor of History Colorado Center museum to learn more about this history.
Please join Denver Takayama Sister Cities committee and History Colorado this year for Bunka No Hi or “Japan’s Culture Day.”
This event is FREE with the purchase of museum admission. Museum admission is always free for History Colorado members.
