Ghost Town Teachers and Nostalgia Night
by Mel Tsuji
A special tribute is being organized for Nostalgia Night on Saturday June 20, 2009
to honour the men and women who taught at internment camp schools during the
World War II.
Around 25 senior citizens, who make up what’s known as the, “ghost town
teachers” will be saluted for their efforts in bringing calm to a chaotic evacuation
situation, when many young, school-age children were among the 22,000 ordered
out of their homes and forced into desolate internment camps.
According to the book Teaching in Canadian Exile by journalist Frank Moritsugu,
about 250 Nisei were recruited to become teachers at eight internment camp schools
operated by the British Columbia Security Commission.
Among the former teachers to be honoured with Pioneer Achievement Awards
will be Aiko Murakami, still sharp and talkative at the age of 92. Along with Dr. Irene
Uchida, Ms. Murakami is believed to be one of few principals of an internment camp
school still living today. Mrs Murakami with her son Mike. Photo courtesy of Mel Tsuji.
“She’s very excited about the tribute,” said her son, Mike Murakami, formerly of
Edmonton, now living in Toronto. She clearly remembers those days when teaching candidates were being sought for schools, as early as
April, 1942 when temporary classes were being organized for Hastings Park, which acted as a holding centre for JCs until the internment
camps could be erected.
“Hide (Hyodo) Shimizu was our only fully-accredited teacher and that was only because she taught in Steveston, which had mostly JC
kids,” said Mrs. Murakami. “Japanese Canadians couldn’t get teaching certificates at that time.” As a result, Nisei university grads, along with
undergrads and high school graduates were recruited to take B.C. correspondence courses to qualify as teachers for the large number of
children headed for the camp schools.
Eventually, schools were set up at all the internment camps, including New Denver, Tashme, Lemon Creek, Sandon, Popoff, Bay Farm,
Kaslo, and Rosebery. Teachers followed the curriculum set by the B.C. Ministry of Education and the schools apparently became so good that
their reputation spread among local non-Japanese Canadian residents.
“Some of the residents said the Japanese Canadian teachers were better than the regular teachers, so they wanted their own children
to come to our schools, but they couldn’t get permission because they weren’t Japanese Canadian,” said Mrs. Murakami. Some of the
internment camp teachers were nationally or internationally recognized later in their careers.
Rev. Takashi Tsuji, the first principal of the Bay Farm school, later became Bishop of the Buddhist Churches of America. Dr. Irene
Uchida, first principal of the Lemon Creek school, became a geneticist and renowned educator. Dr. Uchida, and Hide (Hyodo) Shimizu, who
supervised the internment camp school system, were later named to the Order of Canada.
Another highlight for the evening will be a tribute to the women who played in the Nisei Ladies’ Softball League that thrived in Toronto in
the late 1940s and 50s. Pioneer Achievement Awards will also be given out. To top off the evening, a huge buffet of Japanese Canadian food
favorites, such as Cumberland chow mein, sushi, onigiri, teriyaki chicken and more will be served.
All this for the bargain price of $7. Doors open at 3:00pm and winds up at 8:00pm. RSVP is preferred. Please call 416-441-2345 to

Japanese Canadians Honoured with 2009 Governor General Awards
In March it was announced that two Japanese Canadian visionaries were among the recipients of the 2009 Governor General’s Awards for
Visual and Media Arts. They are the architect Raymond Moriyama and artist Nobuo Kubota.
Raymond Moriyama's designs include the original JCCC, the Canadian War Museum and the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo. Raymond’s
iconic designs can be found around the globe. He also designed the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto, Science North in Sudbury and National
Museum of Saudi Arabia. Raymond has long been a driving force in the vision of the Centre and a great friend of the community. This award
is another in a very long list of Canadian and international acknowledgements.
Nobuo Kubota, the multimedia artist was featured in a recent show in the JCCC Gallery. Mr. Kubota incorporates music and sound
techniques into his installations and videos. He also creates minimalist sculpture and paintings.
Congratulations to both recipients. There achievements are a great source of pride for the community and the JCCC.

Michael Harding, Mayor of the City of Woodstock who recently
returned from a business trip to Japan commented on Hamasaki’s
JCCC Hamasaki Collection Exhibited in works that, “There is something essential in the Japanese spirit
that delights in nature in a way that we don’t. … It’s the loss of the
Woodstock language that has happened in the second and third generation,
By Mika Fukuma not the creative spirit.”
Several Torontonians, Guest curator for the exhibition, Bryce Kanbara of Hamilton,
including representatives noted that the landscape paintings are recollections of the B.C.
from the JCCC and the interior where Kaz Hamasaki’s family was interned -- giving the
Hamasaki family were works historical significance. “Those are the aspects that make his
present at the opening of works interesting and separates it from a Japanese show,” said
the exhibition Play Misty Kanbara.

J-Comm Committee at the JCCC
Early in 2009 an important new committee came into being at the JCCC.
In response to input from the Ijusha community, as well as recognition
that the Japanese-speaking component of the community is one of
our important stakeholders, the JCCC Board has moved to create the
The Centre has a great many members, instructors and participants
who are Japanese speakers. The JCCC understands that we must
evolve our own programming to better meet the needs and interests of
the Ijusha and Japanese-speaking community.
The name J-Comm Committee was chosen to reflect its
inclusiveness: “J” stands for Japanese in the broadest sense: culture,
language – not strictly as a racial or national designation; “Comm” stands Some of the members of the J-Comm Committee. From left clockwise: Junko
for both communication and community. It is through this committee Mifune, Chie Takano Reeves, Kazu Maruyama, Kumiko Okumura-Baxter.

that the JCCC will reach out the Japanese speakers, Ijusha and the vital
community organizations like NJCA, JSS and others. The goal is to be welcoming and accommodating; to tear down any remaining walls
between Ijusha and JCCC – to make all Japanese-speakers feel like family, rather than guests, at 6 Garamond Court.
J-Comm reflects the new, deeper commitment and the JCCC’s desire to embrace and engage our Japanese-speaking friends.
The vision of the committee is as follows: “In the JCCC’s spirit of inclusion, to create activity with the JCCC which serves the needs of
the Japanese speaking community; to create bridges between Japanese speakers; to create opportunities for friendship between Japanese
speakers and the broader Canadian community.”
New Japanese immigrants have been identified as one of the major stakeholders in the JCCC’s future. It is essential that the JCCC
create a direct bond with this group. They include:
• Post-war Japanese immigrants
• Recent immigrants
• Japanese in “international marriages”
• Working holiday visa holders (JAVA, etc.)
• Japanese posted in Canada for business and their families
• Established Ijusha organizations (NJCA, JSS, etc.)
• Other Japanese speakers such as zainichi (Korean Japanese) and kakyo (Chinese Japanese) and those who have lived in Japan
The motto of the committee is: “We are All Connected”. Through J-Comm, the JCCC wishes to contribute in its own way to the groups
that support the Japanese speaking community. JCCC does not compete with other ijusha groups; J-Comm exists to expand and enhance
Japanese language activity at the JCCC through cooperation and collaboration.
