Fodor's Review

The shops lining this open-air mall are geared more toward locals—travel agencies, electronics shops—but there are some fun Japanese-goods stores here, too. Arrive early in the day and you may score some fabulous mochi (a soft, sweet Japanese rice treat) at Benkyodo Company (1747 Buchanan St., 415/922–1244, It's easy to spend hours among the fabulous origami and craft papers at Paper Tree (1743 Buchanan St., 415/921–7100, Have a seat on local artist Ruth Asawa's twin origami-style fountains, which sit in the middle of the mall.
