RFUMC Japanese Memorial Garden

A view from the Japanese Memorial Garden on the grounds of our dojo’s host, Ravenswood Fellowship UMC. RFUMC was founded in part by Japanese Americans relocated to Chicago from incarceration camps during and after WWII as a result of Executive Order 9066, and the beautiful Memorial Garden is a legacy to their perseverance. Tucked off the street between the church and the parsonage behind a rustic wooden gate, it is one of the hidden gems of Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood.
