As part of a state-supported cultural preservation project for California’s 3 remaining Japantowns, San Francisco opened bidding for the best utilization of its share of the funds. NDD was selected as the project team commissioned to create the Japantown History Walk, a self-guided walking tour, featuring historically and culturally significant landmarks in the community.

The History Walk is a 10 city block self-guided tour that includes 17 permanent interpretive signs highlighting points of historical and cultural significance of the Japanese American community.
