The first Japanese diplomatic legation in Canada was established in Ottawa in 1928, followed by the 1929 opening of the first Canadian legation in Japan in Tokyo. Since then, Canada and Japan have shared a long and fruitful relationship. With this exhibition, we hope to show the depth and variety of exchange between these two countries over the past 80 years with photographs of the Japanese Imperial Family's visits to Canada, daily life in the Japanese Canadian community, cultural and athletic activities, meetings between the political leaders, etc.

Photographs have been kindly provided to us for use in this exhibition by the following organizations: the Calgary Japanese Community Association (CJCA), the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC), the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre of Montreal (JCCCM), the Japanese Canadian National Museum (JCNM), the Ottawa Japanese Community Association (OJCA), Kyodo News, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, and the Japanese Cabinet Public Relations Office.

This exhibition is organized by the Consulate General of Japan in Toronto and the Japan Foundation, Toronto, supported by the Imperial Household Agency, the Cabinet Public Relations Office of Japan and Kyodo News, as part of a yearlong celebration of the 80th anniversary of Canada-Japan diplomatic relations.
