Japantown Peace Plaza

Located in Japantown, the Peace Plaza was created and donated in the mid-1960s as a gift from Osaka, San Francisco's sister city in Japan. It was inspired by a series of pagodas that exists in Japan's ancient capital, Nara, and is a symbol of goodwill and friendship. The "eternal flame" monument, as well as other elements within the plaza, add to the historical and cultural ambiance of the plaza, and is the reason why the Peace Plaza is host to many community celebrations such as the Cherry Blossom Festival, Nihonmachi Street Fair, the Summer Obon Festival, and the Year-End Festival.
