Japan – Part 4

Good morning, peeps! It’s Monday morning here in rainy Tokyo as we prepare for our last two performances here in Odaiba. Even though aftershocks are still happening on a regular basis, there were many people at Venus Fort yesterday enjoying the Hawaiian Festival. Our two shows yesterday rocked and it was great to see many of our fans dancing and singing along with us. After everything that the Japanese people have been through, it was wonderful to see people smiling and enjoying themselves …

I also want to let people know that although things are slowly getting back to normal here in Japan, there is still a great need for assistance. The recovery, especially in the northeast part of the country, will be a very long and hard road and they will need all the help they can get.

Former sumo wrestler and celebrity, Jesse Kuhaulua (Takamiyama), dropped by to visit during our second performance in Odaiba yesterday. He’s such a warm and gracious human being, and is still beloved and well-respected here in Japan. He’s also still very strong … I gave him a hug and it felt like I was wrestling a bear!

We had dinner at Yama-chan last night with friends and the tebasaki was great as always!

Aloha, “D”


  1. Mahalo nui loa for getting our keiki girls up on your stage! Through dancing with your precious number “Aloha You – Kizuna” and touching with your warm hearts praying for Japan, I am sure they could learn pure ALOHA spirit from you. Actually I’d never seen their dancing with such brilliant smiles before!

    • Thank you so much for bringing the girls to join us on stage. It is such a pleasure to watch them dance and it would be awesome if we could someday get a huge group of keiki to dance “Aloha You” with us! Please give the girls a big hug for us and I hope we see them when we return in July! Much aloha, Lloyd
