With the opening of the Japan
Center in 1968, Nihonmachi came into its own as a ethnic
showcase in the cosmopolitan tradition of San Francisco.
Stretching for three blocks - bounded by Post, Geary, laguna
and Fillmore streets - the center houses a fascinating array
of shops, art galleries, a bookstore, restaurant, a spa,
travel services, movie theatres and a deluxe hotel.
Exploring Japan town in San Francisco is an exciting trip to
Japan this side of the Pacific.
