Roadtrip USA: Japantown San Francisco

...the largest Japanese community in the US

Besides the large Chinatown, San Francisco also has Japantown. It’s smaller, streching just over 6 blocks and it’s much more relaxed and clean. The action takes place inside of 3 malls between Filmore St and Laguna St. Japantown is much less tourist focused, than Chinatown. We browsed through shops selling practical household and travel accessories and had lunch at Suzu Noodle House, which was good but not great.
