Explore the Corners of SoCal's Japantown, Little Tokyo

Though Little Tokyo's beginnings date back to the year 1885, this historic district is no stranger to new development. It's the place to go for Japanese food, of course—there are plenty of delectable options, both old and new. Your can't-miss stops are Sushi Gen, a neighborhood staple since 1980, and the luxurious Kagaya, which serves shabu-shabu like you've never tasted before. Little Tokyo is also home to one of the best jazz clubs in the city, Bluewhale, where patrons are encouraged to keep the talking to a minimum and simply enjoy the music. Plus, the area has a multitude of ultra-Zen Japanese gardens, such as the James Irvine Japanese Garden at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center, as well as Buddhist temples like the Higashi Honganji.
