It's been one year since the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan. In recent weeks, restaurants around town offered sake specials and discounts, raised funds and much more. On March 10, public appreciation event Japan Endless Discovery at the Grove, organized by the Consulate General of Japan in Los Angeles and the Japan Business Association of Southern California, featured musical demonstrations, samplings of miso soup, mochi, Japanese jams and piping hot wasabi crackers. The festival was light on food, but attendees slurped as much ramen as they could get ahold of and stayed for the cultural awareness, traditional tea ceremony and, naturally, Hello Kitty.
