Little Tokyo, for those unfamiliar, is the largest and likely soon to be last "J-Town" left in the United States.

Huh? Do you know something about SF and San Jose that I don't? Okay, admittedly San Jose's is pretty sad, but Seattle's is also pretty nice, although not exclusively Japanese, and SF's seemed like it was on par with LA.

Seattle's is interestingly called the International District. And although it practically ate it in the 1940s (along with every mainly Japanese enclave in the US), is still around. Now, it's not very impressive, but I'd actually say the same thing about SF's Japantown.

I have approximately the same amount of experience with all three (visited once or twice), and my vague recollection was that Seattle, SF, and LA were about equivalent wrt Japantown. Maybe I just missed a big chunk of Little Tokyo or something.

Agree with "not very impressive" as a descriptor, though.

I think the guide's view was that Little Tokyo was resurging while the rest are slowly dying off. He did mention that many people were moving to Torrance.

Bah. That was me getting bitten by incognito mode.
