Our Story

We are passion driven women in Vancouver!

Although many people assume that Japan Market is funded by the government like other big public festivals, we’re just passionate business women putting our hearts into spreading the awesomeness of Japanese culture in Vancouver. Each of us are small business owners and vendors ourselves. We understand what vendors want.

Our dream is to create happy events where local Japanese vendors shine, as well as non-Japanese vendors, who have passion and love for Japanese culture, to join this little Japanese community. We believe creating such events will lead to better friendship between all Vancouverites!

We feel very lucky that so many people support what we do, including sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and thousands of customers who come to our events. Thank you very much!
