About the Festival
The Nikkei Matsuri-San Jose Japantown  (Japanese-American Festival) embraces the local community's love and appreciation of Japanese-American Culture and Heritage.

In 1976, as part of America's Bicentennial celebration, the City of San Jose encouraged local ethnic communities to sponsor festivals to share their culture.  The Japanese-American community responded with a successful festival which is now, the Nikkei Matsuri-San Jose Japantown.

This 2015 year will be the 38th Annual Nikkei Matsuri. The festival is located in the heart of San Jose Japantown-only one of three surviving Japantowns left in the United States.

In the Festival
What better way to share Japanese American Culture, than, through food and the arts! There is something for the entire family at Nikkei Matsuri!  Plan to spend the entire day in Japantown.
