    In 1957 SF entered in a sister city relationship Osaka--hence the nickname "Little Osaka". Osaka is SF's oldest sister city. A block of Buchanan St, in Japantown, was renamed Osaka Way on Sept 8, 2007

    It comprises about 6 square city blocks. San Francisco's Japantown is the largest and oldest such enclave in the United States. Only 3 even remain in the US (the others being in LA & San Jose)
