The shopping here is wonderful, we bought souvenirs and gifts we couldn't have found anywhere else in the area. Especially enjoyed were the Anime-themed shops where you can purchase any manner of items related to your favorite Japanese cartoon. We also enjoyed sampling the food: bubble slushy (try it, it's surprising), sweet buns, fried Chinese-style chicken on a stick, and Ramen. It is a lively area for entertainment as well, there was open-air karaoke going on each evening we were there. Next time we are in LA we will definitely spend more time here.

This small community is full of Japanese specialties. When you walk into it, you feel like walking in the street of Tokyo. Every piece of japanese characteristics is right in front of your eyes. Wind chimes, sculptures, and Sakura lanterns, etc. Many retails closed by dusk, but some of the restaurants remaining open until midnights. You still can grab some of good japanese food in there.

If you're going to the Japanese American Museum then spend some time walking around checking out the little shops and holes in the wall ramen and sushi places. Always loved the Japanese shops for all those kitchen gadgets and other home items that you never thought existed or needed. The area is not big and is accessible by metro and the bus.
