Happy New Year Japanese-Style!

Aloha & happy new year to all of you! To all my Japan friends, あけましておめでとうございます!今年もよろしくおねがいします。

It has been a while since my last post, so I wanted to share how we celebrate the new year in Hawai’i. Being local Japanese, we have our own modified traditional customs that we celebrate each new year!

4th of July Update

Just to let you all know, we have been asked to headline this year’s fourth of July celebration at Ala Moana Shopping Center! This is a great honor for us, as the free event draws tens of thousands of people every year! We are very excited to be celebrating our nation’s independence day with music and fireworks!
