2ND ANNUAL DELICIOUS LITTLE TOKYO
Friday, July 21 – Sunday, July 23
The 2nd Annual Delicious Little Tokyo event is here! From Friday, July 21 through Sunday, July 23, drop by the Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles for a day (or three) of authentic Japanese craft libations, bites, art, and more. Experienced foodies and first-time explorers alike will find Japanese inspiration everywhere they look.
After work on Friday, swing by the event to enjoy Mutual Trading Co. sake and small plates at First Street North from 7 PM to 10 PM. First Street North is a staple to the Little Tokyo scene, and the Friday night event will also feature a multimedia installation that invites guests to reimagine the historic street. Tickets for the sake event are $100.
Saturday in Little Tokyo is filled with inspiration from Tokyo. Some highlights from the day include a poke & tea tasting (11 AM to 12 PM), a FREE bento box demo led by a former Mrs. Japan and nonprofit organization Table for Two (1 PM to 2 PM), a latte art Workshop (3 PM - 4 PM), and a historical walking tour of Little Tokyo (5 PM to 6 PM).
The last day of Delicious Little Tokyo can’t be missed. Start off the Sunday event with Kawaii stuffed sushi figures (10:30 AM to 11:30 AM), a ukulele class for beginners (1:00 PM to 2:15 PM), a FREE cocktail demo at Little Tokyo’s neighborhood highball bar Wolf & Crane (2:30 PM to 3:30 PM), and a beautiful Japanese tea ceremony led by renowned Tea Master Nishimura of the Edo Senke LA Fuhaku-kai School (3:30 PM to 4:00 PM).
