oh my god...NOOOOOO! Is the restaurant on the second floor with 1.50 beer during happy hour still there?! If they close that one too I would freak, cuz what am I going to eat when I come down in July. Anyways, our little Japan Town in San Francisco almost died six years ago. If it wasn't for us "outsiders" that pump money into their markets they will be done. Now it's a lot more outsider friendly.
economy is just so bad...the one in San jose (the very first Japan Town in america) is dying too. On a typical weekday, you have to use a binocular to find someone).
