Little Tokyo Los Angeles

In the heart of downtown Los Angeles is the interesting neighborhood of Little Tokyo. Here are a few shots from the afternoon.

Outside of the Buddhist temple we saw strings with paper tied to them. Omikuji are strips of paper with fortunes that can be purchased at Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples all over Japan. If you receive a good fortune, you take it home. If you receive bad fortune, you tie it to a tree or stand designated for this, and leave your bad luck behind.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
