Food and shopping highlights in SF's own little slice of Tokyo.
Exquisite handmade papers. The origami gallery is not to be missed.
Hardware, yes -- in fact, tools you may not even know how to use. But also lamps, wall hangings, and so much more.
For all your home sushi-making needs.
The diner is a cognitive disconnect from the exquisite mochi confections. Soft, aromatic and flavorful. A real treat.
Excellent okonomiyaki. A fine destination for Shabu Shabu as well.
$9 karamiso ramen + $4 Kirin in a frosty mug = happy belly.
Very intimate. Very expensive. Very hard to get in to.
This is the spot for shabu shabu. Full stop.
The ultimate zen experience. Splurge for the treatments with the private bath.
Good cheap bric-a-brac and possibly the best selection of Japanese junk food.
A box of mochi treats is a practically perfect hostess gift. The selection here is incredible.
This place sort of defies description. Harajuku fashion, art films, rotational galleries and Onigilly.
The foot massage will at first feel like a form of torture, but then you feel the relaxation radiate through your entire body.
School supplies, cleaning supplies, kitchen supplies -- your supplier for nearly everything, and crazy cheap.
The name says it all! If you want to nipponize your home, this is the spot.
