San Francisco Neighborhoods: Japantown
The five-tiered Peace Pagoda, a gift to San Francisco from the people of Osaka, Japan, is the centerpiece for this neighborhood, which, opened in the spring of 1968, is the shopping and dining hub where you can get exquisite sushi, buy handcrafted Japanese notebooks and papers, sing a song at a karaoke bar, or catch a new-release film at the Sundance Cinemas Kabuki Theaters.
