Shop and support Japanese American Museum of Oregon at our holiday gift shop! Celebrate the tradition of gift giving and choose from Asian American gifts and crafts created by local artisans and designers. Omiyage features jewelry, cards, origami ornaments, home accessories, arts and crafts, Anime-inspired merchandise, books, and a selection of curated vintage items.
This exhibition shares the rarely revealed story of the grace, grit, and gaman (Japanese for perseverance) displayed by Japanese American women. Visitors will learn of the unique challenges these women faced—in their own ways, on their own terms, and in their own times.
A virtual panel discussion, Grace, Grit and Gaman: Generations of Japanese American Women, was held on Wednesday, June 23, moderated by Dr. Linda Tamura and featuring Dorothy Sato, Julianne Parker, and Vicki Nakashima. View the panel discussion via YouTube here.

This interactive webinar delves into how Japanese landscape design principles and aesthetics have impacted the ways in which modern society approaches art and architecture while helping mold our relationship with nature.

To Bear Witness – Extraordinary Lives features photographs, profiles, and short films that capture the stories of individuals who left their homelands for safe haven in Oregon. These brave men and women, born in places as far-flung as Austria, Bosnia, Myanmar, Cambodia, Germany, Hungary, Rwanda, Sudan, Syria, and Tibet, witnessed the atrocities of war, genocide, and the Holocaust. Each profile reveals the resilience of the survivor and the generosity of the many who provided assistance along the way.
Our Virtual Grand Opening was Thursday, May 6th! View the event via YouTube.
