A Taste of Japan in San Francisco
Webster and Geary Sts
San Francisco, CA 94115
Japantown, also known as Nihonmachi, is historically where San Francisco's Japanese-American population resided. Japantown suffered a blow during the internment of Japantown's population during WWII, and some say that the district has never recovered. Nonetheless, it remains a lively area comprised of several ethnic restaurants and local attractions. Situated across from the Fillmore, J-town houses some excellent sushi and tempura, traditional sculpture, and plenty of shopping to pass the time. If Chinatown left you unsatisfied, come to Japantown for some of the best sashimi and tempura the city has to offer.
