The Historic Japanese Cemetery Vandalized in Oxnard Needs Your Help


A GoFundME page was created to help repair the damage a vandal caused to a historic Japanese cemetery in Oxnard.

The police were called to the Historic Japanese Cemetery when reports rolled in that a man was breaking headstones and pulling up flowers.

The man was detained but the cemetery owner decided not to press charges.

The cemetery is located at the corner of East Pleasant Valley and Etting roads, has around 200 people buried at the site

The Ventura County Japanese-American Citizens League set up the GoFundMe to replace the broken headstones and markers as well as replacing the chain link fence with an iron fence.

"Though most of our members do not have family members buried here, we are passionate about the restoration in spite of this setback. It is part of our tradition to honor the dead. We want to right the situation to honor the Japanese pioneers of Ventura County."
