Miniature versions of famous Los Angeles landmarks including the New Beverly Cinema

Situated in Little Tokyo, LA's second oldest neighborhood and one of the three remaining historic Japantowns, Fugetsu-Do has been making traditional Japanese mochi and manju for over 117 years! . Passed down through three generations of family ownership, the Kito's have operated this sweet shop since 1903 and, over the years, have weathered a series of unimaginable challenges. From the internment camps of WWII, to depressions and pandemics, and the ever-present threat of gentrification, Fugetsu-Do is an impressive story of resilience and its significance to the Nikkei community makes it an unquestionable icon of Little Tokyo and the City of Los Angeles. . There's still time to enter to win this miniature of Fugetsu-Do! See my previous post for info on how to enter. . #miniaturemodel #miniaturebuilding #miniaturist #miniature #miniatureart #scalemodel #scaleart #scratchbuild #scratchmodel #losangelesart #losangeleshistory #vintagesign #vintagestorefront #modelmaking #littletokyo #LittleTokyoLA
