About the Book

A Story about the Importance of Place

Join little Shiro as he visits his favorite place in the whole wide world: J-Town (or Japantown)! Every visit is a memory for the ages, and this one is no different. From a belly full of yummy manju, some learning at the Japanese American museum, stories from his obachan an ogichan, to some ondo dancing at the obon festival, little Shiro remembers why J-Town is such an important landmark in his life and for his community.
