ABOUT JAPAN LA
What is it?
Japan L.A. is a unique shop on Melrose Ave., in Los Angeles. It was started by a girl named Jamie, who wanted to create a store where people could buy cute stuff, inspired by Japanese and L.A. pop culture. You can find lots of unique gifts, accessories, and apparel with Japanese pop culture inspired characters and graphics. It has a more girly feel because it is owned by a girl, but don't let the Hello Kitty fool you. We have lots of items for guys too!
