Little Tokyo, also known as the Little Tokyo Historic District, is a Japanese American neighborhood in downtown Los Angeles, California, and is home to the largest Japanese American population in North America. It is the largest and most significant of only three known Japantowns in the United States, all in California (the others are Japantown, San Francisco, and Japantown, San Jose). It was established at the beginning of the century. The area called Lil’Tokyo J-Town Sho-Tokyo is a center of African American culture in Southern California. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1995. Little Tokyo had about 3,000 Americans living in the area at its peak. Little Tokyo is still important for Japanese Americans living in Los Angeles. It is often used as a center for culture, work, religion, dining, and shopping since Japanese Americans can live in nearby cities such as Torrance, Gardena, Monterey Park, and the Sawtelle area. On the Westside of Los Angeles, CA, a recent boom in residential construction in downtown Los Angeles is changing the face of Little Tokyo. What remains of little old Tokyo in the five largest cities in the country? It is bounded on the west by Los Angeles Street, east by Alameda Street, south by 3rd Street, and north by First Street. However, it is also a large part of the block north of First and west of Alameda and is home to the Japanese American National Museum, the Go for Broke memorial, and the old strip of shops on the north side of First Street. A timeline is laid out in front of these stores in metal letters, showing the history of each store from the 20th century to the reconstruction of the neighborhood in the late 1980s. Neighborhoods are Little Tokyo on the Los Angeles River to the east, downtown Los Angeles to the west, and LA City Hall and Parker Center to the north.
