    This is a small museum but it's been designed well and provides lots of information about the history of the Japanese people in Hawaii. The displays are thoroughly labelled so you can do a self-guided...  more »

    Many events are held at their ballroom. Plenty of parking. Some may find it easier to hold their next meeting here than Waikiki.

    FOOD: Lots of oishii (delicious) food. Personal favorites were the grilled mochi with nori and fresh andagi that we always get every year. The trick is to go early to avoid the lines. This year we went not that long after the event started and encountered no lines. PARKING: This year because of construction at the parking lot near the UH Law Library they moved the shuttle pick up to near the Clarence T.C. Ching Field with parking at UH parking structure free during the event that day. That made parking a breeze with a lot of available parking and handicap parking stalls. Plus there were at least 4 buses that were shuttling people back and forth. Definitely will be back next year!!

    The thrift shop is a great place to find collector items.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
