The main exhibit will have visitors test their knowledge of the numerous and unique good luck symbols of Japan — from maneki-neko, or the “beckoning cat,” to the auspicious daruma dolls — there will be more than two-dozen symbols on display. A new photo exhibit of images from Camp Minidoka will educate attendees with then and now photos of the former incarceration camp where many Seattle-area Japanese Americans were forcibly relocated to during World War II.
