We recently headed to Los Angeles for our most recent Local Adventure, a fun linkup hosted by Esther & Jacob, and spent a day in Little Tokyo. I had been looking forward to this trip for a few weeks and really enjoyed the afternoon.
Little Tokyo musts:
- Try Ice Cream Mochi at Mikawaya
- Eat at any of the delicious restaurants
- Try macarons at Lette
- Drink tea or sake!
A note: We tried to visit Chado Tea, the tea shop located in the museum, but they wouldn’t let us do the tasting (about $20/person). They said we could make a reservation for 30 minutes later (even though the restaurant was completely empty when we were there and only one table was taken). They wouldn’t let us sit without a reservation if we weren’t eating lunch. The host was a bit rude and so we left without doing the tea tasting.
Other than that, we had a really enjoyable day meandering through the stores, trying treats at some of the different vendors and getting sushi for lunch.
