Domo Staff Blog – Visiting Manzanar, CA

During July 4th weekend, our staff visited Manzanar War Relocation Center which was one of ten camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were interned during World War II. It is located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada in California’s Owens Valley between the towns of Lone Pine to the south and Independence to the north, it is approximately 230 miles (370 km) northeast of Los Angeles.
We were impressed by how well the place was preserved and maintained, and also surprised by how many people were visiting. There is a museum where you can learn the history and people’s lives there. You can also talk to volunteers who had experienced this tragedy. We found a display of Toyo Miyatake’s camera which was the main theme of the documentary film “Toyo’s Camera“.
Admission is free for all visitors. If you have a chance to visit this area, please drop by at Manzanar.
Address: 5001 Highway 395 Independence, CA 93526

Here are some photos we took.
