Japantown & Western Addition


Hayes Valley, Japantown and the Western Addition combine here to make one dynamic choice for San Francisco dining. Within walking distance of Civic Center and the San Francisco Opera, Hayes Valley is a trendy stretch of Hayes Street that now includes a spacious Hayes Valley Green, a new park lined with palm trees in the center of Hayes Valley dining and shopping. Both hip and upscale, Hayes Valley is a small, but impressive, destination neighborhood for San Francisco dining. With over thirty Japanese restaurants packed into a small neighborhood, not to mention the traditional Japanese Kabuki Spa and several karaoke bars, Japantown, also known as Nihonmachi, continues to be the epicenter of Japanese culture in San Francisco and California's largest Japantown. Offering a different spin, the Western Addition today still continues to be a source for African American culture and stellar soul food in San Francisco.
