Little Tokyo is the Japanese version of Chinatown in downtown Los Angeles. Covering 67 acres of land and a mere four blocks, the area may not be as famed as its Chinese counterpart, yet it manages to retain a fair share of tourists and locals who come here to shop, eat and even look for a place to live. Having survived quite a few hard times, the area is now abuzz with businesses, restaurants, shops and hotels. Quaint, 19th century homes add ambiance to the place. Exploration is best done by foot.
