E komo mai (welcome) Friends, We are glad you could visit our site.  We have enjoyed your comments and look forward to hearing more from you.

April and May were devoted to getting ready for the Hula festival in June at the Shirakaba Ikenotaira Hotel in Nagano.  Hula schools from all over Japan gather here each year to dance and honor Hawaiian Hula traditions. japanese hula

This is the second year that we have had the pleasure to attend.  Again, we were able to enjoy the performances of many of the hula schools of Japan.  Laughing children to our Elders danced their Mele with joyful hearts.

We met a lot of nice people, heard many stories about their trips to Hawaii and learned what Hawaii meant to them as we sold our honey, handmade honey soap and honey lip balm.  Can’t wait to go back next year.
