Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen & Wandering Around Little Tokyo, Los Angeles

A trip to Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen in Little Tokyo for the best authentic Japanese Ramen that LA has to offer.

Shin-Sen-Gumi Hakata Ramen

Welcome to another edition of ~Sachie’s California Food Diaries!~ Today, we’re going to take a look at some delicious Japanese ramen from Shin-sen-gumi. With a few locations throughout LA, Shin-sen-gumi Hakata Ramen is the go-to, hotspot location for authentic Japanese Ramen! The little Tokyo location was absolutely packed during the Anime Expo weekend, so we decided to return the week after.

Visiting The Getty Museum, Galleria, and Gardens | A Week in California

The gallery itself houses many iconic works and sculptures by the likes of Van Gogh and Cezanne, as well as impressive gardens and a breathtaking view of the city below.

Admission is free, and there is a small tram that transports visitors from the lower parking area to the upper galleria and museum.
