Shop Little Tokyo & Galco's For Christmas and Hanukkah

Godzilla Christmas Tree is in the lobby attached to Bicycle Coffee 358 E 2ND ST.
LOS ANGELES, CA. 90012, just head back and up some stairs to grab some pics.

Ding-dong, ding-dong.

Morty, did you light that MENORAH!

Oh, the sounds of the holidays. And those sounds will be complaining if you don't get presents for your friends and loved ones and associates who think your friends, when you're just putting up with them.

If looking for Christmas gifts, stocking stuffers or just plain ol' anything better than socks for Hanukkah then you should head to Little Tokyo. There's just a gigantic selection of niche shops, so there's something for everyone. We're gonna go over a few here and also cram in Galco's, which isn't close at all.

Retro Game Camp has a crazy selection of gaming goodness straight from Japan. We mean, pretty much the only thing there is Japanese games and consoles and it's the old stuff. Perfect for sitting around the Christmas tree or menorah and playing some classic Famicom fun.

For those special gifts you have Kinokuniya Bookstore. Which doesn't just have special imported manga, magazines and art books from Japan, but a huge selection of pens and stationery. It's got cute little items perfect for desk toys.

Just below the bookstore is Marukai Market. Here you can get special imported treats from Japan. We mean candy and desserts, chips, chocolates. But what always really blows us away is the soda selection. This year why not try Apple Coke?

Not far from there is Nijiya Market, which has its own special imports. You just got to snag the special Fanta face sodas so you can take some silly selfies for Christmas.

Ending on even more soda love, is love for soda that only Galco's can bring you. It's beats Bevmo and makes Total Wine and More look a cheap knock-off. No one does soda like Galco's a gigantic selection of soda from around the globe. Imported soda from all over the place. There's just so much to try.

Then they have stuff from all across America and it ain't easy to find either. 

Why you can even make your own soda in the back. Don't forget the retro candy you can get too.
