GO:LA - Little Tokyo Walking Tour - LA Weekly

Better late than never...

A brief walk through the five-block Nishiki Market in KyotoJapan, is a life-changing experience. Amid the knives and noodle shops is a seemingly endless array of vibrant vegetables, ones that have blessed very few American palettes. You could eat a different mushroom every day for a decade without repetition -- and the number of pickled mysteries on display could take a lifetime to decipher. If you lack the time or money for a trip overseas, the Japanese American National Museum is here to help with a Japanese-veggie-focused tour right here in our own backyard. Edible Adventures in Little Tokyo, a "vegetarian walking tour," will focus on the tumultuous history of Japanese produce farmers and the role their products played in Little Tokyo's homes and restaurants. After the four-hour tour, you'll surely be wondering why you don't put konnyaku jelly on everything.
