Consulate General of Japan (Sunday)

This display is ongoing and located in the Vancouver Buddhist Temple.

Opened in 1889 as Japan’s first government office in Canada, the Consulate General of Japan serves BC and Yukon.  Japan’s first diplomatic mission opened in Ottawa in 1928 and Canada opened its first legation in Tokyo in 1929 completing the bilateral relationship. 

The Cultural Affairs Section of the Consulate General of Japan is pleased to provide displays and information about the culture of Japan, travel, and programs offered by the Consulate.
