This picture just looks like some Japanese market somewhere but actually, it’s in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles. A film crew put up banners and bikes to make it look like a Japanese scene for the TV show “Heroes” on NBC.
This scene involved Hiro Nakamura (played by actor Masi Oka) doing is usual time travel or some other super human activities.
The left side of the banner simply says, “Shopping Center” in Japanese. The bicycles are props but they did look like they might actually work. Click on the thumbnails below to see a bigger version of some of the other pictures I took.
