ManoaDNA is heading back to Japan today for a final hana hou with Hawai’i Tourism Japan.  It’s indeed been an honor and a privilege to represent our beautiful island home and to share our aloha with the wonderful people of Japan!  I’ve been so blessed to have met so many people who I now consider a part of our extended “ohana“, and I especially want to send a very sincere mahalo to Ichikura-san and his hard-working HTJ staff for allowing us to be their musical ambassadors in Japan for the last 4 1/2 years!  You guys are the best and I wish you the best of luck in the future!

But even as this chapter in ManoaDNA’s life slowly comes to a close, our journey has really only just begun.  Like a beautiful butterfly emerging from its cocoon, we’re now set to spread our wings and move onward and upward in the music world.  We gladly look forward to the new challenges ahead of us and will do our best to exceed our fan’s expectations.  It’s going to be a fun and exciting ride, peeps, so fasten your seat belts because the Great Adventure’s about to begin!

Stay tuned … my next blog will be from Japan!

Aloha, “D”
