The Kyoto Grand is nice, but there's a pretty derelict stretch of streets between it and the Figueroa Corridor. I'd visit Little Tokyo for a bit around an AX, but for the most part I try to stay local.
And therein is the concern. 5 months of knowledge of this conflict, 2 months to go, and no real answers. I'd almost rather hear that they screwed up and they don't know what to do than nothing.
