In San Francisco, Japanese restaurants have everything they need. The ocean is just a stone’s throw away, so fresh fish for sushi abounds. What’s more, denizens have the adventurous palates to appreciate not only california rolls, but hand-made mochi, barbecued eel, and the Japanese-Mexican fusion cuisine at Mas Sake. Here, Japanese food is everywhere, so tired tourists won't have to venture far as many San Francisco hotels serve the cuisine. In this fertile milieu, it’s no wonder the city’s best Japanese spots are among the best restaurants in San Francisco.
