LOS ANGELES TRIP (DAY 5) – MIKAWAYA MOCHI, LITTLE TOKYO, LOS ANGELES, CA

After our little lunch at Class 302, we took our chance in the LA bad traffic and drove to Little Tokyo. It was rainy and lots of traffic, a 1 hour drive turns into 2.5 hours drive!!

Nonetheless we arrived, not a lot of people due to a rainy weekday.

The Japanese Village Plaza is not as big as I expected, couple blocks with cute shops and restaurant. Honestly I was a little turned off by the rain.

We stopped in Mikawaya because our friend said they have fresh Mochi Ice Cream. Yeah!! Love Mochi! Only 1 table inside, no wait … very quickly we just wanted to try it out.

All of the Mochi Ice Cream are excellent! Soft, chewy mochi filled with creamy ice cream! We picked 4 flavors: Mango, Sesame, Matcha/Green Tea, Guava (good guava taste, refreshing!)
