Did you know that there is a collection of wonderful art installations, historic photos and a commemorative garden just around the corner from Momo? Join news anchor Lori Matsukawa and Maiko Winkler-Chin (Executive Director of SCID Preservation and Development Authority) for a tour of Nihonmachi Alley, where artists like Erin Shigaki, Amy Nikaitani, Rumi Koshino and architect Yuko Kunugi have created artworks that focus on the history of Japantown.

We’d also like to mention that after 36 years of anchoring King 5 News, Lori is retiring next month! We will miss her in-depth reporting of goings-on around town and are so very thankful to her for bringing attention to our little corner of the city. Good luck to you, Lori!
