Japan Town, San Francisco
9, Feb 2008
Japan town in San Francisco is on Webster and Geary Blvd. It occupies 2 blocks. It's a short taxi ride or you can take bus no.38 from Union square. This place has a very Japanese character to it. Here you will discover scores of wonderful restaurants, sushi bars and karaoke lounges, shops with a fascinating array of merchandise from Japan. They also have a Japanese supermarket packed with food products from Japan.

Another interesting place in Japan town is the Kinokuniya bookstores. The only Japanese book store in bay area. The Cherry blossom festival is celebrated here every year in the month of March.

23, Feb 2008
To all those people who want to check out the Chinese new year parade in San Francisco its happening on 23rd Feb 2008 from 5.30pm onwards. You can catch the parade on Market street or at Geary. If you don't want to brave the cold streets of San Francisco then sit back and tune to KTVU Fox 2 and watch the parade live. I will be personal there to take some pictures of the parade and check out the floats. Interesting fact about this parade is this is the largest celebration of Asian culture outside Asia.
