Led by a World War II Japanese fighter pilot, 34 students arriving fresh from Tokyo to help California earthquake victims raised their fists and cheered three times, "We will do our best!" Then they pitched in at a Salvation Army relief center Thursday, packing food boxes, sorting clothing and putting together sacks of baby supplies. The students flew to California at their own expense to help 3,000 victims displaced in the Watsonville area by the Oct. 17 earthquake.

Selected memories of Japanese travels: the graceful arc of storefront ikebana blossoms; an unexpected whiff of incense on a Tokyo back street; the spontaneous offer of a small gift from a Kyoto merchant. Pleasurable memories, each of them brought back during a weekend trip to San Francisco's Japantown. Known also as Nihonmachi or simply J-Town, Japantown is where I come to renew the acquaintance with things Japanese that I first struck up during two visits to Japan in the 1980s.

The heart of this city's historic Japantown is being sold, stirring up fears in the century-old community that it could lose its deeply rooted cultural identity. The nine-block area faces a double hit: Not only are the new owners not Japanese, they're from Southern California.
