Square, Plaza sights in Los Angeles
- Sort by:
Just a tortilla toss east of the river is Mariachi Plaza , where traditional Mexican musicians in fanciful suits and wide-brimmed hats troll for work.
Little Tokyo swirls with outdoor shopping malls, Buddhist temples, public art, traditional gardens and some of the most authentic sushi bars, izakayas (taverns) and shabu shabu parlors in town. The community can trace its roots back to the 1880s, but only a few historic buildings survive along E 1st St; in 1996, they were placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Stop by the Little Tokyo Koban for maps and information.
