Karayama Japanese fried chicken - Little Tokyo

Karayama just opened last week in Little Tokyo. Famous for crispy exterior that remains crispy even when it's cold, Karayama started as a mom-and-pop shop in Asakusa Tokyo, then grew into 50+ locations in Japan and in Asia. This is the first U.S. location of Karayama.

Line friends Pop-Up store in Hollywood

Line friends pop up store just opened in Hollywood. They have some L.A. limited items, also BT21 and regular line friends items.

*Line is popular free text/call app in Japan and Korea. 99% of Japanese people use line. In Japan, instead of asking "what's your number?" we say "what's your line?"

I saw display but I couldn't find any slippers or mugs

I think they had S, M, and L size pillows, prices were around $30,$43,$98 or something like that.
