What happened to Kappo Ishito (Weller Court in Little Tokyo)?

Hi gang,

So I was at Weller Court in Little Tokyo yesterday, buying tickets to the sumo tournament, and I went to check out Kappo Ishito, where we've had many excellent old school Japanese kappo-style meals - It's gone! When did this happen?

Is the replacement (Kyu? I believe is the name of the new place) any good? Anything else in Weller Court I should try?

Your bummed out 'Hound,

    That's strange, because I read many favorable reviews on yelp.com

    Are you sure it's CLOSED? Were you on the 3rd floor of Weller Court? It's suppose to be right next to Orochon Ramen.

      Hey you're right... Kappo Ishito is indeed open after all. I found out by attending the Sumo Tournament on Sunday, where they were a major sponsor.

      It turns out I was looking on the 2nd, not the 3rd floor, of Weller Court. Brain freeze!

        Oh well... Atleast you got to see the Sumo Tournament!
