My early J-Town memories


These are some of the sites that still exist in Los Angeles' Little Tokyo that I have fond memories of while growing up. Actually, we never used the name Little Tokyo in reference to the area. Saying it still feels unnatural to my mouth. To me, in my heart it will always be J-Town. For me J-Town represents family. Go through this collection, and you'll get a sense of why... [note: I'll be adding more to this collection over time. I need to go take some more photos and go through older ones to scan] *You can read about some of my other J-Town memories in my article: A Yonsei's Reflections...on J-Town Memories
