Hidden Histories Project
Hidden Histories is a community project, initiated by Susan Hayase and Tom Izu, using AR technology to engage the public with art inspired by the events and stories that have been a part of San Jose Japantown. Throughout its more than 130 year history, San Jose Japantown has developed from an extension of San Jose Chinatown (Heinlenville) to a thriving neighborhood that became the home to several immigrant communities including the Japanese, Chinese, and Filipino. With a changing Japantown of the 21st century, many of the stories, images, and sounds of the hard work, play, family life, struggle, and conflict—the life pulse of the community—are often buried, hidden. Hidden Histories hopes to bring these riches to the fore and perpetuate an awareness of this community’s importance.
