San Francisco 49 miles Scenic Drive -2

Great things about this San Francisco 49 miles Scenic Drive is the fact that you can start from anywhere in the city where you find the sign and start to follow. Also if you do not have time any more and want to stop following the scenic drive sign, you can quit it any time. So, I did not know it has starting point and ending point. But it does. The starting point is around San Francisco City Hall. Since I posted City Hall's picture from front, this time I am posting another picture of San Francisco City Hall as left above.

This area is like San Francisco's cultural center. East side of the City Hall, there is Asian Culture Center whereas many Asian Cultural Exhibition and Theatrical Art Performance are held. When I took this picture right, they were showing Japanese Traditional Kabuki Play. In the building, there are Chinese Arts Exhibition permanently set. It also shows history of Asian Americans which is very interesting.

City Hall does marriage ceremony service. So, in the weekend, there are couples who marry in the City Hall and take pictures in the park front.

Now it is about the time to follow the sign "49 miles Scenic Drive" to drive to Japan Town as next interest point.

Route continues from here to Japan Town, then to Union Squre following the sign board like below picture.
