The Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California (JCCCNC) is organizing its 9th annual youth and family community Clean-Up Day at the Japanese Cemetery in Colma.

Often times we find ourselves too busy in our daily lives to honor our past and remember those who have passed on.  The Japanese Cemetery in Colma is a unique cultural treasure that deserves our attention, our respect, OUR TIME.  the place represents our history and our loved ones.  For many of us, it’s the place where our grandparents, great grandparents, parents, family and friends are laid to rest.

Meet us at the entrance of the Japanese cemetery at 9:45am! Be sure to RSVP by Tuesday, May 15th
