It’s a monday

I’ve been on a leave of absence from work and that means I’ve been working on a lot of interpersonal things for over a month now. One of them being what else can I be doing with this space. What kind of content do I want to keep publishing? What am I really passionate about? So it’s been a slow road to discovering those answers. But I do still love to travel and have fun. I just want to figure out a better way to share it all.

Little Tokyo Nights

I’m sad to say that I can’t really remember the first time I discovered the Little Tokyo district of downtown Los Angeles. It’s all mixed up with the other earlier times I went to explore the area. Having been a HUGE anime nerd (still am today, lets just face it) I was drawn here because of my love with Japan, the language and culture as well. My brother and I I think came here first on our own. He also was a huge anime nerd like myself. We had so much fun walking through the little alley ways. Pretending we really were in Tokyo. It wasn’t soon after that my brother and I actually made our way to the real Japan. Albeit, a few years later.

I found a new appreciation for this little area. Since it was my first touch of Japanese culture, food and actual stores that sold anime and manga. So here’s a little gallery of how the area looks like today.
