The Sakura Gala is held at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. Completed in 2004, the JCCC is a dynamic, contemporary institution that integrates cultural programming and economic development. Designed by KPMB Architects, simplicity, economy and quality were the guiding principles in the design of the new Centre. A combination of new construction and strategic renovation transformed the existing 114,000 square foot office building into a cultural facility that is welcoming, accessible and inclusive. The design embodies an idea of community and provides a flexible infrastructure for the full range of programming offered by the institution.
Dinner is held in Kobayashi Hall; with soaring 24 foot high ceiling, 6,500 square feet of space and state-of-the-art projection and sound systems, it is the ideal space for large-scale events such as the Sakura Gala.
