    Officially dedicated in 1973, Sakura Square commemorates the experience of Denver's Japanese community. The square was developed by leaders of the Denver Buddhist Temple and features a Japanese garden, residential and commercial buildings, and statues of important figures in the history of the community, such as the Buddhist Priest Yoshitaka Tamai (pictured).
