Little Tokyo Historic District Set
Located on 1st Street between San Pedro Street and Central Avenue, Little Tokyo was home to the first Japanese in Los Angeles. They began arriving in the 1860s to fill the need for labor when the Chinese Exclusion Act prevented Chinese from migrating to the United States. By World War II, Little Tokyo was home to 30,000 Japanese. Most were deported in 1942 to concentration camps including Manzanar. Today the historic district features public art and a walking tour that interprets the power of the place, and serves as a model for the Heritage Parkscape.
