The New J-Town

As Little Tokyo fades from being the JA center of social activity into an icy i-don't-know-what-it's-good-for place (except for maybe Daikokuya Ramen) the long overlooked orphan cousin to it, Sawtelle, is rising to the occasion by becoming, if not a social hub, a cool J-Town with fresh new shops and restaurants. Yes, there's the JA National Museum, East West Players, and the JACCC anchored in the old J-Town but I'm referring to the spontaneous funky stuff. I know, it's old news, right? But OC take notice! This is what I'm talkin' about! Trust the outcome of the urban dynamic! Then you too can walk by a shop and have real cartoon characters jump out to greet you like they did to Doug. They will protect you from danger while you feed your face!
