    Get a free guided tour by one of the dojis who had lived through the internment camps who share their personal experiences. Most are in their 90s but so energetic and inspirational!

    The changing exhibit typically lifts you up into a cheery mood and when it ends, you are thrust into the guilt of Japanese internment camps. Nice once, JANM.
