Gyu-Kaku Part II: Why This is One of the Best Restaurants on the Westside

happyfunsmile - name says it all.

Sam and I were lucky to catch the last show of happyfunsmile's U.S. tour and boy are we glad we did. Brian, one of the main singers in this dancing and singing troupe was spectacular to watch.

An Amazing Izakaya - Honda-Ya: Los Angeles, Fountain Valley, Tustin

I'm a big fan of Japanese food and this restaurant is really high on my list.

An izakaya is a type of Japanese drinking establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks.

With over 200 items on their menu, Honda-Ya guarantees variety. Think of it like a Japanese tapas bar. Lots of little dishes to choose from that are relatively inexpensive, but bursting with flavor and a pretty extensive sake and soju list, with Japanese… Continue

The full color photographs, captured by Tatsuki Masaru in a project started in 1998, allow insights both into a personal and intimate world, and a unique aesthetic phenomenon.…
