Japantown - Fillmore District

City , District

The neighborhood that is now Japantown (Nihonmachi) is approximately one mile west of Union Square and is part of San Francisco's Western Addition, a subdivision that came into being with the writing of the Van Ness Ordinance in 1855. The land then was sandy and barren, and accommodated primarily bobcats, rabbits, quail, and chaparral.

Today, Japantown is one of only three Japantowns remaining in the U.S. today. Peace Plaza is at the heart of Japan Center. The mall and the storefronts across the street off the Buchannan walk way have lots of great restaurants, bars, and shops.

The Fillmore District crosses over Geary and still offers live music lovers a lot. But it's definitely anchored by The Fillmore - such a classic music venue.
