The Night Before the Grand Opening

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, for the longest time you may have heard about a building specifically to promote Japanese pop culture in San Francisco’s Japantown. After nearly three years, New People, the new J-Pop and anime center that Viz Media invest their hard earned manga sales, will be open today at noon. To celebrate the grand opening, Viz in conjunction with the Japantown Merchants Association and the Center for Asian American Media, held a free screening of Kamikaze Girls, outdoors at the Japantown Peace Plaza. I was there to take a few pictures of the screening and Japantown in general. We’ll have more photos of the grand opening of New People later today, so stay tuned!
