Mini Matsuri is driven to celebrate and connect the community to Japanese arts and culture in a safe manner


In response to BC’s Restart Plan, provincial health orders, restrictions, and guidelines, access will be limited based on capacity restrictions. 

The venue capacity has been reduced to 50% capacity per public health guidelines. To control attendance, a maximum of 390 visitors will be admitted per hour. The recommended visit time is between 90 and 120 minutes. 

  • The number of tickets are limited. We recommend you book your tickets in advance.

  • You have a one hour admission window. For example, if you book a 12:00-1:00 ticket, you will enter between 12:00 and 1:00pm, and can stay as long as you wish.

  • The recommended visit time is between 90 and 120 minutes.

  • We encourage you to present your ticket on a mobile device, but you can print it out too.

All proceeds support Nikkei National Museum & Cultural Centre. We humbly thank your contribution to honour, preserve, and share Japanese culture and Japanese Canadian history and heritage for a better Canada.

Please Note: This event is subject to cancellation depending on conditions in August. Details on our safety plan are available below.
