San Francisco: The Japantown.

Japan definitely is one of my must-go destination sometimes in the future. Nonetheless, that is also one of the more expensive dream to make it into reality. So for now, I would happily settled with Nihonmachi, or Japantown in SF that enabled me to experience just a hint of nippon colours.

As you can probably tell, we were there during the sunset hours, so the photos look dark and gloomy.

Spanning only a few blocks, Japantown isn't as huge as in Chinatown of SF. The heart of Japantown is the Japan Centre (not shown in photo), fairly non-descript on the outside but filled with delectable restaurants and sushi bars, shops, open courtyards, specialty stores, and a Kinokuniya bookstore. This mall serves as a concentrated expression of Japanese culture in the middle of SF.

One of the more interesting points-of-interest is the five-tiered Peace Pagoda, a gift from Japan.

Nothing would fascinate me more, than these Cherry Blossom trees.



So now I can proudly say, yes, I have seen sakura before! Oh, how proud! =)

I only know there's a chinatown, didn't know that they have Japantown too. I'd like to go to Japan too one day, my SIL who's been to Tokyo for her honeymoon said it's a really nice place for sight-seeing, shopping and good food.

Blogie-talkie ... dissapointingly, not at all. I was so surprised, and dissapointed. Guess Manhattan (NYC) still has the best chinatown. At least I have a few grea M'sian restaurant there but I found none in SF.

Oh Fong, how I miss you! Thanks for visiting!

Shoppingmom, let's work hard on that and I am sure we'll make it someday. =)

foodcrazee, thanks. I love them a lot too!

jesslyn, I am glad that you like them.

Zara's mum, quite Japanese ... not bad lah, consider the fact that I haven't been to Japan at all. Definitely worth a stroll.
