Can I Buy a Vowel?

Little Toyko's Weller Court will soon be lit with new signage. Seen here is the first of two signs being installed for the shopping center that sits along the Kyoto Grand Hotel and Gardens. This corner -- the confluence of East 2nd, San Pedro and Onizuka streets -- has a great sightline of City Hall, and the new signage compliments the Shinkichi Tajiri sculpture "The Friendship Knot."

While the new addition may not be as exciting as the change last summer, when filming for the Will Smith film "John Hancock" transformed the corner into a "circuitronics" store, you have to like the simplicity of the new design.
