Need some sushi and Little Kitty merchandise? Little Tokyo is the place to go in downtown L.A.! Great selection of Japanese merchandise, bakery items, and produce, not to mention restaurants. Little Tokyo also has two Japanese grocery stores.
We went to Little Tokyo late on a Saturday and there was entertainment and food till about 10pm. It was nice to walk around the different shops. My favorite had to be the two ice cream trucks there! Merci Clement and the Blue Nova. We...More
Going to Japan? This is a great place to get aculturated-well, a little. Wide range of food, lots of cheesey souveniers, and some fairly cool architecture. Even a few Anime wannabes strolling around, always good for a chuckle.
Love this place! Quiet authentic actually. The environment, the food and goods sold here are similar to certain parts of Tokyo. The museum was closed so I couldn't experience that. Will visit when it is open the next time.
I was actually hear during nisei week which is around the early part of august and I wandered into this mall. Basically on the lowest floor were stores devoted to japanese anime and video games. Some stores had figurines of notable japanese cartoon characters, others...More
Only about 2 blocks long, Little Tokyo is a nice spot to visit. It should not take more than 1-2 hours to see the area and that is if you go into the shops and restaurants. Try the steamed bun carts, delicious. It also has...More
Hi.. Is it worth going downtown to visit Santee Alley, Little Tokyo, and the Fashion District..?? I don't know if I should go here or save the time for a different place.. I'm going with my 16 year old daughter and we will like to find some knock offs of things of LV and others.. Is Santee Alley a place to go??

Oh my gosh, with a 16 yr old girl, YES! to all of them!!! While in Santee Alley, you are also near the jewelry district, and can get great buys on gold jewelry...I bought my wedding ring there. Santee Alley and the Fashion District are both all about fashion. I used to go to LIttle Tokyo all the time when I was a teenager. Be sure to have lunch or dinner there. If your daughter is into anime, she'll love that. Make sure you google these places, and find out hours. I haven't lived in SoCal for...More
Trip Report Oct 29-31st (1 Replies)
Oct 29th – Train from Anaheim to LA. Took red line metro to hotel. (Comfort Inn on Sunset Bvld – see review). Too early to check in so had lunch at In N Out. Took bus to Los Angeles County Museum of Art. First went to the tar pits which are next door. Very interesting. Not impressed at all with LACMA, with 7 buildings (1 under renovation) I was expecting a lot more. Some of the art was nice but there is way too much empty space. It’s good for a nice overview but it’s not concentrated on any...More

Yes, it is a common observation of visitors. They need more time. L.A. is a large a complicated place. Have fun planning your next visit.
