Comprising an area of six city blocks, this area was established after the 1906 Earthquake, when Japanese immigrants moved in. After the attacks on Pearl Harbour, the Japanese here were interned, leaving a avoid for a large number of African Americans to move in. Today tourists visit the place for its apparent similarity to Ginza District in Tokyo. Restaurants, supermarkets, and shopping malls all bear a Japanese motif. Two major festivals, Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival during two weekends in April and the Nihonmachi Street Fair, held on a weekend in August, attracts a lot of attention, and is excellent times to visit.
