San Francisco’s Japantown has been the center of the city’s Japanese American community since the early 1900s. And for nearly its entire history, Japantown has been home to the Mihara family. The Miharas’ store, Paper Tree, has been a cornerstone of Japantown business for 55 years. While it has gone through many iterations over the years, today it carries exquisite Japanese paper, stationery, and art supplies. But it is best known for origami, including the work of its co-owner and manager, origami artist and teacher Linda Mihara.
