First Street North

Economy Culture

Save Little Tokyo!
Stop the erasure of our historic community!


First Street North is at risk. Located behind Japanese American National Museum, Far Bar, Fugetsu-Do, and more, First Street North is one of the last 3 remaining pieces of land that can be controlled by the community — or sold off to the highest bidders if the city doesn’t hear our voice.

Historic Heart of Little Tokyo

First Street North is home to some of our most important cultural institutions, legacy businesses, and historic sites—and we could lose them all to rising rent and gentrification.

Our Community Vision

Over 200+ community members created the Sustainable Little Tokyo Community Vision to ensure a healthy, equitable, and culturally rich Little Tokyo for generations to come.
