The Beginning

A Japanese community established in the current areas known as Culver City and Marina Del Rey founded the community center in 1921. By 1931, the community was composed of an association made up by farmers, judo school and Venice Gakuen (established in 1925).

The early Venice Gakuen was established by eminent Issei pioneers of the area concerned with the preservation of the Japanese language and culture among their children.
