[East Meets West] Finding Kawaii in So Cal

Need another place to buy Japanese-themed gifts, attire, and more? If you’re in the Los Angeles area, look no further than Japan LA. If you’re not in Los Angeles, don’t fret! They also have an online store!

JapanLA’s most recent claim to fame is that Angelina Jolie earlier this year took her a few of her daughters shopping here. Check out this article from US Magazine.

The reason I like JapanLA are their selection of unique Hello Kitty and Tokidoki items. If you’re seeking a super cute Hello Kitty bag (reminiscent of the Louis Vuitton Vernis line), then this is definitely the place to go. I’ve purchased Tokidoki shirts from here before too. The shirts re very high quality and I wear them proudly.

One of the more interesting items they have added lately are the Hello Kitty mens’ boxer briefs. They definitely would make a great gift for that male HK lover in your life or to impress your HK-loving partner!

Their shop is located on trendy Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. They recently opened in a bigger space to accommodate their merchandise. Every time I go, I definitely feel like a kid in a candy store.

Bottom Line: Japan comes to you at JapanLA. The holidays are just around the corner
