This is a cool spot. Lots of interesting things to see and it's like you hit a worm hole and suddenly are in a small section of tokyo. My wife has been to Japan several times growing up and she said this is true to the culture.

The general area of Little Tokyo is nice, however, there is a lot of homeless people camped around the area. The smell of urine is not a welcoming smell to walk through. Most of the restaurants serve suchi. If you don't have a taste for it, you're in trouble. I did experience some racism there. Some shops act like they didn't want to serve me. Not very friendly. It's interesting to note, I visited the Japanese American Museum. I saw the articles of how the Japanese people were discriminated against by the white man. They in turn showed me that they are not very welcoming to Afro-Americans. So sad.

Nice place to hangout. Lots of food and drink options. Also shops and cute stores with clothes, toys, etc..

Parking lots around saw since for 3 bucks but find metered parking if you're lucky too.

Most places require masks.

No public bathrooms.
Even stores don't have.

Lots of wonderful shops and small specialty eateries to spend a day exploring, shopping and eating. Sometimes it gets busy enough that there may be a short wait to enter a store as they do a good job in maintaining social distancing in the stores. There are also a couple of gardens around town, but have not been able to see them yet.

Understand that it's a tourist attraction up front and you will enjoy it more. Pricey little shops and eateries but they do have authentic foods and products. Also be aware that public restrooms are nonexistent in the entire Japan town area.

My boys loved this area of town, but just not for me. The area around here is not exactly nice, but there was a parking garage near the area of that we went that has most of the shops, and the merchants do validate your tickets. Currently the shops have lines to go in due to limitations on number of people in the stores, so be prepared for a wait. Also, the stores are very much like the stores in many Asian countries, no real sense of order, packed with things all over the place. Almost makes it a game to try and find what you are looking for.

My oldest got a strawberry cream pastry at one shop. He loved it. So the pastries were a hit.

Unique experience. I don't know how authentic it is since I've not been to Tokyo, but I enjoyed spending an hour walking around, checking out the shops. There was this place selling freshly made red bean cake for 2 bucks. Loved it with my coffee.

Very cute, very clean, all Japanese and restaurants everywhere. Gift shops are common and you can buy anything anime related here (obviously). Be warned if you need a bathroom in a restaurant they are reserved only for customers. Beyond that it's an a very nice calm place to walk around and an obvious tourist destination. No shade though. Overall it's good you should go

Very cool! If you want to go to the museum, be advised; it's closed Mondays. Lots of delicious food and other small shops, though.
