THE Philippine-Japan Historical Museum in Calinan, Davao City first opened its doors in 1994 through the efforts of Philippine Nikkei Jin Kai, Inc. (PNJK) with the support of Davao-born Japanese and some private Japanese benefactors. In 2019, the museum underwent a major renovation after receiving support through a grant assistance from the Japanese government and additional funding from PNJK and Philippine Nikkei Jin Kai International School.
Under its new name: IMIN–The Philippine-Japan Historical Museum, the museum is now enhanced with better exhibit space and materials augmented with digital devices that further enrich the learning experience of visitors about the historical relationship between Davao and Japan.
Make IMIN part of your school trips or travel itinerary while in Davao.
The museum is open for walk-ins from Mondays to Saturdays (8am to 5pm), and Sundays for advance bookings.
