Little Tokyo East and West

A center of Japanese culture and history, Little Tokyo near downtown Los Angeles has become a tourist destination where you can find authentic Japanese food, restaurants and products from electronics to fine china. We love the tiny Frying Fish restaurant in the Japanese Village Plaza Mall for its conveyor belt sushi. In West L.A., a stretch of Sawtelle Boulevard just north of Olympic has become a Little Tokyo West (also known as "Little Osaka"). Here you'll find Japanese restaurants and noodle shops, several wonderful Japanese nurseries, Japanese video stores and hip clothing boutiques, such as Black Market. Check out Bar Hayama, an upscale sushi bar in Little Osaka with one of the city's best saké lists.
