Kitsilano, or “Ki-Chi-Ra-No” to the locals, was home to the second largest Japanese Canadian community in Vancouver. From 1904-1942, over one thousand people settled here and built housing: kyabins (cabins), storefronts, a church, a Japanese Language School, and a public bath. Families ran businesses and worked in the local industries, and children attended Henry Hudson Elementary.
