Welcome to the Gathering Place
On January 27, 2012, we named the Nikkei Pioneer Building hall the Dr. Sanbo Sakaguchi Hall to recognize a lifetime member that represents leadership and compassion through his service to the community as a healer by day and volunteering after hours helping SFV Judo Dojo and Bishop Alemany High School football. Dr. Sakaguchi's world was balanced with music, sport fishing, and more.
As you know, the temperature in the valley can reach 110 degrees. These days, SFVJACC members enjoy a healthier temperature during Senior Hot Meal on Tuesdays and Fridays, or when they check out a book from the Japanese and English collection in the conference room library. It's heavenly!
We are immensely grateful to our many volunteers who take care of the Center and one another. Whether you are interested in traditional Japanese cultural classes or modern team building activities that are inter-generational, you will find your place here. Thank you to the organizations and clubs for making SFVJACC our home away from home.
