Fieldtrippers: Hidden History of Esquimalt Teahouse

Join Dr. Yasmin Railton of the Landscapes of Injustice project, Tsugio Kurushima from the Victoria Nikkei Cultural Society and Royal BC Museum Collections Manager and Military and Homefront Historian, Paul Ferguson as we walk and talk about Japanese Canadians in BC during the time of Pearl Harbour, the effects of dispossession and internment on thousands of Canadians and the current campaign to restore the Esquimalt Japanese Teahouse. 
Meet at the Tillicum Road entrance parking lot of Esquimalt Gorge Park, just south of the Gorge Waterway. After you enter the park off Tillicum Road, follow the road down to the first lot you come to. We'll gather at the edge of the parking lot, near the entrance to the Japanese Gardens. Dress warmly and be prepared for winter weather.
