The Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj) will hold a reception for the grand opening for “Yesterday’s Farmer: Planting an American Dream” at 10 a.m. at the Wesley United Methodist Church, at 566 North Fifth St. in San Jose’s Japantown. The exhibit takes a nostalgic look back to the early 1900s, when Japanese immigrant families first established permanent residency in the Santa Clara Valley. More than 100 pieces of vintage farming equipment and vehicles will be on display, including a Model T truck, wagons, and tractors from the early 1900s. Dr. Gary Y. Okihiro, co-author of “Japanese Legacy: Farming and Community Life in California’s Santa Clara Valley,” will give the keynote address. Museum is located at 535 North Fifth St. Limited parking is available in the church parking lot on North Sixth Street. Following the reception, visitors can tour the museum and view the new exhibit.
