JapanSacramento.com aims to highlight Japanese culture, including, food, entertainment, and festivals in and around the greater Sacramento region.
To promote a Japanese culture-related event,
please add it to our event calendar.
Sacramento is home to a thriving Japanese-American, Nikkei, and Nihonjin community. And while only remnants of Japantown’s past remain, something of an unperceived Sacramento Nihonmachi lives on.
JapanSacramento.com’s goal is to shine a light on that “new Sacramento Japantown,” if you will, by sharing the things we love most about Japanese culture—food, drink, entertainment, and festivals—that are available right here in the region.
Roseville, Folsom, West Sacramento, etc., will be included, and from time to time, we’ll also feature select events from other areas, for example, Lodi, Stockton, Walnut Grove, San Jose, and San Francisco.
As we move into the year 2020 and the decades to come, it can be said with great confidence, that Sacramento’s new Nihonmachi will be clearly seen and celebrated. It’s hoped that, with some effort, today’s unperceived Sacramento Japantown will tomorrow be as bright as day—if not brighter.

A little about JapanSacramento.com
JapanSacramento.com and its social media properties are an independent project not associated with or endorsed by any of the organizations whose events and information we share.
This project is a labor of love, and while love is given freely, website hosting, URLs, WordPress themes, the framework of this site, and various add-ons, etc., all cost time and money. So, there will be some appropriate ads and advertising opportunities, for example, sponsored posts, and they’ll be related to Japanese culture and experiences. Also, it is hoped that enough funds can be generated to support a freelance photographer. Donations are welcomed.
And last of all, after having paid JapanSacramento.com’s bills, should there be any remaining funds, they’ll serve as compensation. But I come last.
My Japanese friends call me Kenji, and 日本人ではありません (I’m not Japanese). Still, Japanese was the first language I ever wanted to learn, and it’s among the last that I’ve tackled. Japanese food and music are some of the best things ever, I think. At home, I can often be found wearing a yukata. And I dream of visiting Japan. I hope we’ll meet at some point.
