1. Kakehashi Monument
Inscription.

This memorial commemorates the 150 Victorians of Japanese descent who are buried in this historic cemetery, beginning in 1887.

During the 1940's, when no person of Japanese descent was allowed to remain within 100 miles of the West Coast, many grave markers deteriorated or were vandalized.

This monument is dedicated to the early immigrants from Japan whose courage and endurance made our lives in Canada possible.
