Domo arigato and chonmaneyo! That's “Thank you very much” (in Japanese) and “You're welcome” (in Korean), and that's all you need to know for the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center's Little Tokyo Korea Japan Festival . The downtown venue salutes both Japanese and Korean cultures with subtitled film screenings, live performance and traditional cuisine. Onscreen: Rough Cut (Yeong-hwa-neun Yeong-hwa-da), Hun Jang's 2008 Korean gangster flick; Tsubaki Sanjuro, Yoshimitsu Morita's 2007 remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1962 samurai story; and Tina Yanagimoto's documentary New Beginnings: Cultural Harmony in Little Tokyo. James Kyson Lee and Eriko Tamura of TV's Heroes host the cross-cultural celebration.
