Meet Me at Higo: An Enduring Story of a Japanese American Family, an exhibition presented by The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience. Higo 10 Cents Store, owned by the Murakami family and a social hub in Seattle's Japantown, has a long and fascinating community and family history. Meet Me at Higo welcomes younger generations to connect with and explore what it means to be Japanese American. Impressive personal photos and documents are included in this traveling exhibition. Today, Higo 10 Cents Store (or Higo Variety Store) is KOBO at Higo and is still located at 604 South Jackson in Seattle's Japantown in the International District.
