Set in the heart of Japantown — the largest and oldest neighborhood of its kind in the U.S. — our San Francisco hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring the best of what the city has to offer. At the corner of Sutter and Buchanan, Kimpton Enso Hotel has a locals’ feel while still being near all the iconic sights you’ve seen on postcards. In Japantown (also known as Nihonmachi), don’t miss the Japantown Peace Plaza. It’s home to the Peace Pagoda, a five-tiered tower gifted to San Francisco by the city of Osaka in the 1960s. This inviting plaza also plays host to a variety of community events, including the can’t-miss Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival every April. Within a concentrated six-block area, you’ll find everything from matcha ice cream and mochi donuts to cast-iron teapots and cutting-edge skincare products. Part of the larger Western Addition neighborhood, our Japantown San Francisco hotel is also close to the Fillmore District, Lower Pacific Heights, and Alamo Square. Catch a show at one of the jazz clubs along Fillmore, snap selfies while wandering the leafy streets of Pacific Heights, and tuck into a bowl of ramen right outside our front door.
