San Francisco - The Hills & Japantown (Chapter)
This is the Hills & Japantown chapter from Lonely Planet’s San Francisco guidebook.
Russian and Nob Hills are the stomping grounds of eccentric millionaires and hardcore urban hikers, with cable cars delivering customers to hilltop bars and high-fashion boutiques. When you see cutting-edge fashion in starchy Victorian storefronts and rock at the legendary Fillmore, you’ll know you’ve arrived in Japantown.
- stepping off the Powell-Hyde cable car atop twisty Lombard St and taking in the spectacular hilltop vistas
- marveling at afternoon fog blowing through the Golden Gate, from atop Sterling Park
- eating sushi and catching a live band at Yoshi’s
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Sleeping and Shopping.
