San Francisco is a major city within the Japanese Pacific States, as opposed to Los Angeles which has not been featured or mentioned to date. Both the Japanese and Nazi Embassy are situated in the city. It appears that the Nazi Embassy is located in Golden Gate Park, while the Nippon Building is located somewhere downtown. During the invasion, the Japanese military did bomb sections of the city, as mentioned in the first season when an undetonated bomb was salvaged of its explosive contents that were later used to bomb the Nippon Building by Frank Frink. Prewar San Francisco was a hub of Asian immigrants coming into America such as Chinese-Americans and Japanese-Americans so by the time the Pacific States was established there was already a community of Asians and so it was relatively easy to assimilate them into the existing Japanese Empire culture. The city is adorned with Japanese-language signage and culture in addition the city's most famous monument the Golden Gate Bridge (originally constructed from 1933-1937) has the emblem of the Japanese Empire to signify Japanese rule. Along with New York City, San Francisco is the center of the former Axis powers occupation of America.
