Japantown Is Hip Again

photography by Ricky Camargo at

Greetings chums,
Another weekend is upon us, and I've just discovered the coolest spot to hang out in: Japantown. Yes, this ’hood is cool again thanks to some new restaurants like bushi-tei, the reborn Kabuki Theatre and a hotel or two that have received massive makeovers. For example, the once deathly dull Best Western on Sutter is now bursting with life and personality as a result of a Joie De Vivre makeover.
