Paul I. Terasaki Budokan will be a unique gathering place that will enhance the quality of life for locals and commuters alike through its diverse, inter-generational programs.
Recreation and sports facilities in LA are at a premium with access severely limited by scheduling problems and high costs. Paul I. Terasaki Budokan will fill a huge void for sports programs and activities both locally and regionally.
Paul I. Terasaki Budokan will help preserve the cultural heritage of Little Tokyo and bridge different communities through sports and events.
Our mission is to provide a facility in Downtown, Los Angeles for youth, families and seniors that offers sports, community activities, and opportunities to connect visitors to Japanese American culture and a vibrant, sustainable Little Tokyo.
Our 4th Annual Straight Outta Little Tokyo Fundraiser is a 80’s-90’s hip hop throwback party featuring live music, food and drinks previously held at Nishi Hongwanji. We can’t wait to host SOLT5 at Budokan after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted for large gatherings! Proceeds from this event will benefit Terasaki Budokan.
