Fodor's Review

Inspired by the comic phenomena manga and anime, the Tomo draws hipsters and Japanophiles eager to surround themselves with Japanese pop culture, or J-Pop as it is known across the pond. And the location adds to the appeal: it's one of San Francisco's most interesting neighborhoods a couple of blocks from the Fillmore district, Yoshi's, and the famous Fillmore concert venue. Artist Heisuke Kitazawa created primary-color murals for the lobby, the popular Mums Restaurant,

and each of the rooms. The cozy quarters have Scandinavian wood furnishings and low Japanese-style beds; amenities include Keurig coffeemakers, flat-screen LCD HDTVs with video-game consoles, and iPod docking stations. Mums serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily; in the evening locals and tourists line up for shabu shabu, so make a reservation.
