Some random snapshots of recent happenings in Little Tokyo...
A crowd of young people, mostly teenaged girls, gather outside of the anime collectors shop, Anime Jungle (325 E. 1st St.) on a Wednesday night. They came to Little Tokyo to meet Japanese rockstar Sugizo who stopped by LA in the middle of a North America tour. Some fans waited as long as two hours to get an autographed CD.
Imprint Culture Lab returned to the Japanese American National Museum. The event is put together by interTrend Communications; its mission is to introduce what's cool with Asian culture to the business world. This year's line up included video gaming, car culture, street fashion brands and the business of crafting.
