As promised, I'm sharing my favorite date spots at Little Tokyo (Los Angeles). It is one station away from union station but honestly it took us about 8 minutes to walk to Little Tokyo from the station.

DATE SPOT 1

Unless, we have a plan the first place we always visit is the Little Tokyo Village Plaza. There's usually a man performing live music at the center of the shops on the weekends. In the plaza: Stationery: Little Tokyo Lifestyle Store, Hello Kitty Store
Lifestyle Good: Kimono store and other random Japan-themed clothing stores
Food: Mikawaya (Mochi Ice Cream Shop), Sushi & Teri (bento box, rice bowls and udon)
Small Grocery: Nijiya Market

DATE SPOT 2

If we feel like staying in the shade we would visit a museum or art gallery exhibit in one of the following:
MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art)

DATE SPOT 3

Cafe Dulce opened a couple years ago. I actually never went there with Mr. P because he was out of state during that time but I've been there a couple of times and the ambience there is perfect for a causal date! Plus, the latte art is beautiful.

DATE SPOT 4

If you happen to be at Little Tokyo for lunch, you must stop by Daikokuya. It's the most famous noodle place in town and you won't be disappointed. Warning: the line might be long but it's well worth it.

DATE SPOT 5

Last but not least, the other Little Tokyo Plaza is a time-sucker. They house my favorite arcade place which transformed into a bowling lane now with a bunch of other arcades on the side and a karaoke room (if you want to practice singing).
The plaza also carry a lot of franchise like Papa Beard, 鈥楲ette Macarons, Cherry On Top (froyo), and a grocery market that has a bunch of Korean snacks.
That's my list of things to do at Little Tokyo? Has anyone been to the places mentioned?

@mymi Maybe before visiting the real thing, we'll make a date at Little Tokyo?
My mom and I would always make a point of going up at least one weekend in summer to visit MOCA :) There is actually a Nijiya market in San Diego so I would go there all the time too! I am putting these on my list next time I'm in LA!
@cindystran Lol I was kinda asking my gf... sorry. 馃槄 It would be fun to go though.
