Before or after, enjoy a pleasant stroll along busy Irving Street and browse the shops. One of my favorites is Sakura (936 Irving St./10th Ave. (415) 665-5064. Daily 10:30am-7pm.), a small shop that sells Japanese household items and foods. I picked up a big bag of rice crackers like they serve in nearby Golden Gate Park’s Japanese Tea Garden, some wasabi-covered hard green pea snacks, and a box of guava cookies from Kauai.
