Photographer's Note

This is one of my favorite points of view to downtown LA. It is from a tiny square in front of the Yamashiro Restaurant which is in the walking distance from Hollywood Blvd. Even if so close from main touristic attractions in Hollywood it is quite often missed by tourists. It is pretty hard to reach by foot because you would need to follow a narrow path which has one way traffic and as you may have heard the cars have the right of way in LA :) But if you get there by car it is not much easier either: since 6 years or so Yamashiro Restaurant introduced a gate which limits access to the viewpoint. However if you ask nicely at the gate that you just want to admire the view they will let you in. You have to leave your car in the valet parking but the tip is up to you. If you don't visit restaurant they will give you about 10 minutes. Even if the people are very kind I did feel stressed out. Unfortunately I arrived too late for the blue hour, the day was very foggy and there was some construction going on which obstructed the view as you can see.
