The #90x90LA Little Tokyo Cultural Spine series, part 2 of 4. We invite you to join us for 4 consecutive Wednesdays, July 19–August 9, of site-specific readings and performances in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles—the second oldest neighborhood in L.A. and one of three remaining historic Japantowns in the nation. Come along a short tour of the Little Tokyo Cultural Spine, a pathway highlighting many of our neighborhood's vibrant historic and cultural sites, and explore 133-years of history, resilience, and self-determination.
The second tour, Ancestors and Origins, moves from the Union Center for the Arts to Higashi Buddhist temple, and ends with happy hour at Wolf & Crane!
