San Francisco is the leading financial and cultural center of Northern California and the San Francisco
Bay Area, a region of 7.6 million people, which includes San Jose and Oakland.

Today, San Francisco is one of the top tourist destinations around the world, ranking 35th out
of 100 most visited cities worldwide, and is renowned for its cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills,
eclectic mix of architecture, and landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge, cable cars, and
its Chinatown. The city is also a principal banking and finance center, and the home to more than
30 international financial institutions, helping to make San Francisco rank 8th in the United States.

San Francisco is located along the sea coast, surrounded by water, with the cool-summer Mediterranean
climate. It is generally characterized by moist warm winters and dry summers. San Francisco's weather
is strongly influenced by the cool currents of the Pacific Ocean, which moderates temperature swings
and produces a remarkably mild year-round climate with little seasonal temperature variation.

Telegraph Hill

Telegraph Hill is primarily a residential area, much quieter than adjoining North Beach with its bustling
cafes and nightlife. Aside from Coit Tower, Lillian Coit Memorial Tower, is well known for its gardens
flowing down Filbert Street to Levi Plaza. It is a 64-meter tower in the Telegraph Hill in San Francisco.

The tower, in the city's Pioneer Park, was built in 1933 using Lillie Hitchcock Coit's bequest to
beautify the city of San Francisco
.

Golden Gate Bridge

The Golden Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate, the opening of
San Francisco Bay into the Pacific Ocean. The structure links the city of San Francisco, on
the northern tip of the San Francisco Peninsula, to Marin County. It is one of the well
internationally recognized symbols of San Francisco, California. It has been declared one
of the modern wonders of the World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Frommer's
travel guide considers the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the most beautiful and photographed
bridges in the world.

The scene passing under the Golden Gate Bridge experienced in June 1960 was printed in my mind.
I will never forget that moment for the rest of my life.

 US West Coast and National Parks 2012


サンフランシスコは、カリフォルニア州の北部に位置し、アメリカ西海岸を代表する世界都市の一つである。
気候は地中海性気候に属し、一年中気温の差があまり無く、気候的にも住みやすい都市である。急な
坂や深い霧に覆われる場合が多いことでも有名である。観光地としての評価も非常に高い都市であり、
外国人のみならず、アメリカ人の間でも訪れたい都市の上位にランクされている。有名な観光スポットと
して金門橋やフィッシャーマンズワーフ、テレグラフヒル等が挙げられる。市内を走る伝統あるケーブル
カーも人気が高い。

フィッシャーマンズ・ワーフは「漁師の波止場」の名の通り、この周辺は19世紀半ばのゴールドラッシュで
サンフランシスコが大きな町になった時期以来の漁港で、様々な色に塗られた漁船が多数停泊し、
獲れたばかりの魚やエビ・カニ類を水揚げする場所であった。新鮮な魚介類、特にクラムチャウダーを
サワードウのパンの器に入れて提供するレストランや軽食店が有名である。筆者のサンフランシスコ
訪問は、1960年に始まり、1962年、1982年、1993年、そして今回、2012年と5回目であるが、いつ
訪れても観光地としての素晴らしさ、その快適な気候環境は変わることはない。

ゴールデンゲートブリッジ(金門橋)は、サンフランシスコ湾と太平洋が接続するゴールデンゲート海峡に
架かる吊り橋で、主塔の間の長さが1,280メートル、 全長は2,737メートルある。主塔の高さは水面から
227メートルで、そばで見ると鉄の塊である。橋の建設は1933年に始まり、1937年に完成した。1964年に
ニューヨークのヴェラザノ・ナローズ橋が完成するまで、スパン世界一の吊り橋であった。筆者は1960年6月に
横浜からプレジデント・クリーブランド号にて、ハワイ経由、16日間かけてサンフランシスコに上陸したが、
金門橋が霧の中に忽然とその雄大な姿を現し、その下を客船は音もなく、くぐり抜けてぬけて行った、
その言葉に尽くせない感動は、いつまでも消え去ることはないであろう。
