Sustainable Little Tokyo

Little Tokyo Service Center in partnership with the over 100 other organizations of the Little Tokyo Community Council are working to create a future for the Little Tokyo district in Los Angeles that:

  • Respects and promotes our Japanese American history and culture.
  • Retains a strong community fabric.
  • Sustains a robust economy with strong independent businesses.
  • Embraces green technologies.

Sustainable Little TokyoSustainable Little Tokyo seeks to build a cultural ecodistrict in our 130-year-old historic Little Tokyo community that will sustain Little Tokyo for future generations. We are doing this through innovative green infrastructure, growing small businesses, and maintaining our unique cultural Japanese/Japanese American identity through arts and culture.

Through this work, we hope to create a model of what a truly sustainable community looks like as Los Angeles' first cultural ecodistrict!
