Little Tokyo, Los Angeles Lofts and Homes for Sale
With the largest Japanese-American population in North America, Little Tokyo is one of only three official “Japan-towns” in the entire country. Since it was declared a National Historic Landmark District in 1995, this beautiful, vibrant area has become one of Los Angeles’ most popular real estate destinations.
Little Tokyo, bordered by Main Street, Alameda, 4th Street and 1st Street, is an extremely walkable area, and the sense of community here is palpable. With plenty of shopping and world-class dining, it’s no wonder urbanites are clamoring to buy lofts and other real estate in this picture-perfect enclave.

Things to Do in Little Tokyo
Parts of Little Tokyo – despite its mid-town location – feel like they’re centuries removed from the modern buzz of Los Angeles. The Koyasan Buddhist Temple and the Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple both have tranquil gardens and quiet, serene spaces, as does the James Irvine Japanese Garden at the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center.
The Go for Broke Monument, a tribute to the Japanese-American soldiers who served in the U.S. Army during World War II, and the Union Center for the Arts are also located here, so there’s always something to do or see.
