Little Tokyo Google map

I started up a map of Little Tokyo on Google for Discover Nikkei. I thought it would be a good idea to show all the businesses, restaurants and community organizations.

I'm still playing around with ways to organize this map. For example, I might make a chopsticks icon to replace the knife and fork to identify a restaurant. The best thing about this map is that others can contribute. So if you are interested in helping catalog Little Tokyo, please let me know at bokinaka(at)janm.org. I would really like to get photos of all the places to add to this map as well. Eventually, this map will be added to the Discover Nikkei Web site.
