Sustainable Little Tokyo

Sustainable Little Tokyo is a community-driven initiative working to ensure a healthy, equitable, and culturally rich Little Tokyo for generations to come. SLT began in 2013 as a multi-day community vision effort and has evolved into a holistic, neighborhood-wide campaign to promote the environmental, economic, and cultural sustainability of Little Tokyo.


Go Little Tokyo

A one-stop shop for the Little Tokyo events calendar, self-guided tours, parking, directions, and more! Go Little Tokyo is LTCC's community marketing campaign, funded by Metro and executed by CARS, and a marketing initiative to mitigate construction impacts from the Metro Regional Connector.


Haunted Little Tokyo

Ghouls, ghosts, and goblins of all ages are invited to experience Little Tokyo like never before for Haunted Little Tokyo 2019! Halloween festivities will be celebrated throughout the whole month of October with pumpkin patches, ghostly games, Japanese yurei, free Halloween movie screenings, ‘haunted’ walking tours, themed drink specials, and more, ending with a frightfully-fun block party, costume contest and trick or treating on Saturday, October 26th, 2019.

My First Street North (#MyFSN)

First Street North is at risk. Located behind Japanese American National Museum, Far Bar, Fugetsu-Do, and more, First Street North is one of the last 3 remaining pieces of land that can be controlled by the community. We work with our councilmember & community to get First Street North developed for and by Little Tokyo!
