1. Japantown Theater Marker
Inscription. San Jose Japantown was the center of many amusements. We had theater that performed Kabuki and modern shows, like “love stories.” When I was young, people gathered here with their horse and wagon – just tied their horse up to the post and sometimes kept it there all day and night. It was the only place Japanese could gather.
