Description:

San Francisco's Japantown dates from the earthquake and fire of 1906. During World War II, Japanese American residents were imprisoned and replaced largely by African Americans, whose thriving businesses included many jazz clubs. Beginning in the 1950s, a decades-long urban renewal project reshaped both the neighborhood's population and its physical landscape. Today we see Japanese-style architecture next to classic Victorians and the birth of the Fillmore Jazz Preservation District.
