This is a fun little village to visit. It is full of japanese shops, restaurants and even has a Japanese grocery store. The food was authentic and delicious. It was the highlight of my daughters vacation.

It’s quite a good touristic attraction to see a small neighbourhood food of Japanese restaurants, bakeries and souvenirs stores. One can get a nice meal here ranging from regular Japanese ramen dishes to dons, sushi trains and specialty food. Just a short walk from downtown,...More

If you've seen a Little Tokyo in any other city this one won't be much different. Lots of little stores, many empty storefronts and a few good restaurants but not much to write home about. There are better Japanese restaurants anywhere in Los Angeles and...More

Very cool; it's not every city that has a little Tokyo (except in Japan, ha ha). There were a lot of places to eat and shops to browse, huge anime store in the Japanese mall!

I heard it was dangerous there but did not feel threatened once. Delicious Japanese restaurants, cute shops and grocer. All the toys you could dream about in one spot. It was clean and enjoying

An interesting quartier with history and culture tucked amongst the shops, restaurants and exotic architecture.

A highlight was the Japanese American National Museum and the Go For Broke memorial to the Japanese...More

Fascinating place that is reminiscent of shopping districts in Tokyo. There's a variety of clothing, restaurants, bakeries, and more.. If you're staying in the area it's not to be missed.

After a 4 hour tour of LA, we had sometime in the afternoon to just chill and walk around. So, we decided to stop at the Japanese Village. We parked in the parking garage ($10), bought some things at the shops and had dinner there....More

Located in downtown Los Angeles. About a 10 block area of Japanese owned businesses. Include various restaurants and specialty shops. Best covered on foot. A must see for anyone wanting to experience Japanese culture.
