San Francisco Japantown

San Francisco's Japantown, permanently established after the Great 1906 Earthquake, was originally a gateway for Japanese immigrants.  Like the other two Japantowns, it suffered greatly during the evacuation of Japanese and Japanese Americans during World War II and urban renewal.  It now prospers vibrantly as a place of gathering for the JA community and home to important community organizations such as the Japanese Community Youth Council, the National Japanese American Historical Society, and the Japanese Cultural and Community Center Northern California.
