Celebrate Mother’s Day with Go Little Tokyo

Spa Services, Fashion Boutiques, a Floral Shop, Mother’s Day Brunch Specials and More!

 Go Little Tokyo is excited to spoil Mom this May with its list of top places to shop, dine, and celebrate Mother’s Day in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles’ culturally rich, urban neighborhood. Treat the special women in your life to a memory-making mother-daughter adventure immersing in the delectable restaurants, boutique shops, and rich culture that Little Tokyo has to offer.

With its inception more than 16 years ago, Little Tokyo’s well-known trendy, women’s fashion boutique, has flourished and expanded as a mother-daughter brand. Co-owner and daughter, Jamie Hong, shares that her favorite part of managing Little Tokyo’s ultimate women’s clothing & accessories boutique is working with family.

“I would say the most rewarding part of working together with my mother on this business is that we consistently have the interest of our family and our customers’ livelihood in mind,” said Hong. “In this way, combining both of our heads together has been most effective in sustaining Hob Nob’s viability, but also combining our hearts too. It’s something very special that we get to share together.

Stop by The Hob Nob Shop in May to receive an in-store exclusive discount, 20%off all Ray Ban style sunglasses. Then, continue the memory-making in Little Tokyo and enjoy one of Jamie Hong’s favorite treats, “I love grabbing some Matcha Taiyaki with my mom after a long day at the boutique!”
