Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial, Bainbridge Island

Like the waves of time passing, the sinuous, curving Memorial Wall is built on the historic Eagledale Ferry Dock Landing site where the first of more than 120,000 Japanese Americans were banished from their West Coast homes and placed in concentration camps in WWII.

The 276 foot-long contemplative Memorial Wall of old-growth red cedar, granite and basalt honors the names of all 276 Bainbridge Island Japanese Americans at the start of WWII, and it also honors the unique legacy of a community that stood by their Japanese American friends and neighbors and welcomed them home. Five large terra cotta friezes along the Memorial Wall moving illustrate this American story of perseverance, patriotism and courage.

  • I love the serenity here, the history of the people, the courage to face such opposition, live thru it. And some be able to return to their homes or land. I enjoy all of the paper cranes throughout the area and am most impressed when they have the luggage tags on display.
  • This place is located in such a quiet place, and it made me relaxed. Also, I could learn deeply what happened long time ago here, Bainbridge island. This is one of the good places to learn history I think.
