The Kimpton Buchanan is a boutique hotel located in San Francisco's Japantown. It is located just a few blocks away from Pacific Heights and Filmore street with tons of shopping and restaurants. We wanted to stay in a less touristy area this time in San Fran. I definitely recommend this hotel for a unique, stay like the locals experience. We went to some great Japanese restaurants just across the street in Japantown. I actually prefer Japantown over Chinatown in San Fran. It is much more quiet and minimal. There are also some great authentic Japanese stores. I stopped into Paper Tree for some origami paper. Overall a very relaxing experience was had!
