2016 Nisei Week Merchandise0
Welcome to our online shop for Nisei Week Japanese Festival merchandise!
The official 76th Annual Nisei Week Japanese Festival commemorative poster features the Nisei Week Grand Parade in Little Tokyo. This year’s t-shirt features an assortment of objects that represent and celebrate the variety of events that make up the Nisei Week Japanese Festival. The objects are assembled in a circle to illustrate how Nisei Week brings together different aspects of Japanese and Japanese American culture, and at the same time, reconnects the community in a time of celebration.
Both the poster and t-shirt were designed by Kristen Sadakane, a Los Angeles-based graphic designer, whose work has been inspired by her Japanese American culture and her interest in Japanese woodblock prints. For more about Ms. Sadakane, please visit www.ksadakane.com.
