Grace Horikiri


Grace Horikiri, who also goes by “G”, is definitely going to give you a hug when you meet. She’s that kind of bubbly, passionate and friendly soul. As the Executive Director of the Nihonmachi Street Festival the organization’s core message of "For the Community, Embracing All Communities" is also reflected in Grace's own commitment to the her tribe. And her tribe is made up a vast array of humans but especially Asian Pacific communities and in particular the non-profit organizations that provide vital services & programs to places like her beloved Japantown, or Nihonmachi. Grace has been part of this important cultural effort for over 40 years starting first as a youth volunteer and then leading the organization for the last 20 years. Grace is passionate about her community’s youth, elders and the fact that San Francisco’s Japantown is one of only three (incl. San Jose and Los Angeles) left in the United States. Give her and her a team a shout on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, or via Email.
