Okaeri (Welcome Home)
The Nisei Legacy at Shofuso



Okaeri (Welcome Home): The Nisei Legacy at Shofuso is a site-based multimedia exhibit telling the story of the Nisei (second-generation), American-born persons of Japanese descent, and their unique connection and contributions to Shofuso. Focusing on the early 1980s to late 1990s, this exhibit explores the Nisei leaders who organized the Friends of the Japanese House and Garden, a volunteer-led non-profit organization that oversaw the restoration and maintenance of Shofuso until its merger with the Japan America Society of Greater Philadelphia in 2016.
