For the past few months, I’ve been working hard on a new project I’m very excited to announce: Starting today, I’m hosting historic food tours of San Francisco’s Japantown through AirBnB experiences
On the tour, I’ll share little-known stories and secrets of Japantown and we'll enjoy snacks from my favorite Japantown vendors. Of course, no tour of Japantown is complete without talking about the African-American and Jewish past of the Western Addition, so we'll venture over to Fillmore Street as well. Japantown has always been one of my favorite neighborhoods of San Francisco, but it's taken me a while to explore and build relationships in this very special community. It's a community that has continued to exist against all odds, and I hope will continue thriving for many years to come.
If you or a friend have ever wondered where the best spots to eat in Japantown are, or wondered how it came to be, join me! Here are some future dates:
All Thursdays in June except June 1st
Fridays June 16th and 30th
All Thursdays in July
Fridays July 14th and 28th
Saturdays July 8th and 29th
Sign up via my experience page on AirBnB experiences and I can't wait to meet you soon. Stay tuned for a San Francisco Japantown guide later this week, with even more of my favorite Japantown businesses!
