 If you are still trying to shed those pounds you gained over the holidays, join in this walking tour that traverses two neighborhoods — the Fillmore Jazz District and nearby Japantown — and traces their interlocking histories. This is one of many free walking tours offered in partnership with the San Francisco Public Library. Tours meet at the intersection of Buchanan and Sutter Streets, near 1747 Buchanan St., next to the large Japanese gate — the rectangular arch at the entrance to the pedestrian mall. The meet-up location can be reached by MUNI buses 2, 22, and 38. Conducted by volunteers, the walks are free, although donations are always welcome.
