Hello Sam Shueh - We've really enjoyed Japan Day (also the cherry blossom festivals) in the past; I'm sure we will again if we make it there on Sunday.

Good morning Grant Schneider - you should look for a chance to experience some Japanese cultural activities. Taiko drumming (my husband's favorite) will amaze you. The beauty of ikebana (flower arranging) is subtle. And the food, of course.

One of the reasons I love living and working in San Francisco and the Silicon Valley is the richness of various cultures, Shawn Bhakta - the art, the traditions, the dress, the food.....

Good morning, Ron and Alexandra Seigel - Japan Town is a nice, simple walk from our place; great when we want specialty items from the Japanese grocery store, or dinner at any number of places. And how about Kabuki Springs and Spa?

Hello Roy Kelley - the big event in San Francisco this coming Sunday is the Gay Pride parade with thousands of participants and many more thousands in attendance. Japan Day provides a smaller experience, although I won't say quieter since the wonderful taiko drum performances are anything but quiet.
