Preserve and develop the City and County of San Francisco's historic Japantown as a culturally and commercially enriched neighborhood and district, and as a local, national, and international resource;

Strengthen the ethnic diversity of the City and County of San Francisco by bringing together the history and culture of the Nikkei community at and within Japantown for all persons to enjoy and share;

Create an atmosphere of safety, beauty, vitality, and prosperity for the present and future residents, organizations, institutions, and businesses residing or located in Japantown.

San Francisco's Japantown has been the center of the local Japanese American community for nearly 100 years. Since the 1880s, Japanese immigrants started arriving in the United States, and San Francisco was the port of entry for those seeking opportunity and education here. Few are aware that there were once three 'Japantowns' in San Francisco, and although the South of Market and Chinatown Japanese communities have long since disappeared, the Western Addition Japantown has existed since 1906. As such, it enjoys the privilege of being home to many community and cultural organizations, religious institutions, festivals, and the source for just about all things Japanese. From manju at the local favorite Benkyodo, shopping at the Japan Center, and tea ceremonies at Nichi Bei Kai, there are numerous opportunities to experience Japanese and Japanese American community. So feel free to come and enjoy the history, culture, and many characteristics that make Japantown such a unique San Francisco neighborhood.
