It's a relatively small area in downtown LA, maybe a couple of blocks, with the Japanese Village Plaza being the focal point, with a lot of restaurants and shops. There is also the Japanese American National museum, which was closed, but I think may be of some interest. Different than Koreatown, Little Tokyo does not look like the place where Japanese people actually live, so it is basically a big mall, but may be good enough to have a good meal, dessert, and stroll for a couple of hours. In fact, this is what our family did, at lunch time, on our last day in LA, before heading home. We had ramen at Daikokuya with a bubble tea at Boteaga, a soft serve ice cream at Honeymee (my son's all time favorite), and spending some time in the Japanese souvenir shops in the Village. Also, they have some stores specialized in mangas, animes, and Japanese action figures (used and new), with items I only find on the Internet. It was worth the last couple of hours in LA.

Great location. Japanese grocery store (Nijiya), bakery and many restaurants. About half of the stores were closed due to COVID-19. Most workers were Hispanic with no knowledge on Japanese items, so don't expect answers if you have questions. There is a parking garage behind the water fountain. There were many dining options, not only Japanese, but Korean, Chinese and other cuisines. Japanese American National Museum was closed due to COVID-19, but I would like to visit one day. I just visited the monument outside the museum. ・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・・

Just a cute road. Not something special. If you have only few days in Los Angeles, don't lose your time to visit it.

Stumbled across this neighbourhood by accident on the way to somewhere but hopped out and had a nice walk about and some yummy food from the supermarket. Worth a diversion off the normal tourist routes.
