History & Mission statement: January 17, 1936, is a significant date to be remembered by everyone at the East San Gabriel Valley Japanese Community Center. For it was on that day our friend and benefactor, Mr. Eijiro Machida, donated an acre of his farmland to be used by the Japanese Community in the eastern part of the San Gabriel Valley.

On February 6, 1951, the name East San Gabriel Valley Japanese Community Center was officially adopted and was chartered by the State of California as a non-profit corporation. In 1964 the purchase of the present property of Puente Avenue was agreed from the Shepard of the Valley Lutheran Church.

Mission Statement: The ESGVJCC is a not for profit membership organization that provides an environment to promote and preserve cultural heritage unique to Japanese ancestry through social services, recreational, educational and other programs.
