San Francisco Sights



New People Review

The kids' counterpart to the Japan Center, this fresh shopping center combines a cinema, a café, shops, and a gallery with a successful synergy. The basement cinema shows classic and cutting-edge Asian (largely Japanese) films and is home to the San Francisco Film Society. Grab some onigiri (rice balls) and a cup of Blue Bottle coffee at the café, then head upstairs and peruse Japanese pop-culture items and anime-inspired fashion. The cuteness radiating from the Rilakkuma store may overwhelm you. The tiny Superfrog Gallery upstairs exhibits cutting-edge contemporary art.
