I went there to study Japanese immigration to Hawaii. It is located in a quiet and beautiful place. The atmosphere of museum is like Hawaii, so you can feel as if you were in Hawaii. You can get to know well about Japan and Hawaii.

It was my first time to visit there. The museum's collection included valuable pieces, such as tools used during that time or personal photographs donated by families. I could learn what people who lived there did and thought.

The melding of East/West cultures and architectural styles and colors was beautiful, and the cultural artifacts displayed were very interesting. A great way to spend a couple of hours. The bath was gorgeous - don't miss it!
