Little Tokyo

Quoted at the end in this Forbes story about Little Tokyo. Stuff’s happening, and some like it and some don’t. It’s all perfect timing the happening of Imprint which brought an extra 200+ people who would probably rarely hit Little Tokyo. I’m sure some vendors and shop owners actually get annoyed when big groups come through. We were once in Little Tokyo and took off after a couple of years. The changes that were promised then, might be just happening now. We’re talking 10 years later… There’s to be a new train stop, and more, so it’s still a work in progress. Will it attract more Japanese and Japanese Americans, probably not. Will more Japanese Americans or Japanese open businesses here. Maybe a little. But should we expect it to completely be different from what was once there. Most definitely – and that has to be embraced. “They” could all go elsewhere.
