The Japanese American Resource Center / Museum
The purpose of the Japanese American Resource
Center / Museum (JARC/M) is to collect, preserve, and disseminate the arts,
culture and history of Japanese Americans, with the emphasis in Santa Clara
Valley. There is a rich history of our involvement in the life and development
of the Valley. Japanese Americans have made significant contributions to
American history and culture. JARC/M believes that these contributions
should be recognized and known by the larger community.
Location JARC/M is located at 535 N. Fifth Street in San Jose, right in the heart of San Jose JapanTown.
Membership to JARC/M is open to anyone interested in the history of the Santa Clara Valley Japanese American community including members and crew. Membership fees help support the JARC/M collection of archival materials and help to maintain the facilities. Members receive the annual JARC/M report, periodic newletters, and placement on the mailing list for special events and workshops.
