For those interested in the various regional styles of Japanese dance and costume, we happened to be in Waikiki when the Honolulu Festival parade was going on. We didn't see the whole thing, but we happened to arrive just before my favorites performed -- the Awa Odori.

Thanks for posting that! I live on Oahu and I though the festival sounded interesting but I missed out because I was flying to Big Island for spring break. :katana:

Oh I love the Honolulu Fest!
When I was younger it used to end at the zoo and there'd be tons of food and crafts.
My husband and I missed it when we went to HI in '08, but we were there for an asian festival that was at the convention center (it wasn't as great).

Fun pictures!

Aw... great pics! This is the sort of thing I miss about Hawaii. :( I think I know where you were standing for this, but it looks so different!

Koneko, how long hs it been since you've been back? I left moved away in '97. You would not BELIEVE how beautiful Waikiki is now. They redid all of the sidewalks, there's little lagoons and waterfalls all over the place bordering the sidewalks...it's amazing.

The last time I was there was 2001? I know they cleaned up several parts of the city since then. I just always remember the birds flying out of the one noodle shop in Chinatown. :eek: Hopefully, my husband and I will get to go next summer!

On a completely random note: I saw your pictures, and I immediately went out to get shave ice (not as good as Matsumoto's), and bought SPAM. Dinner tonight? Spam Musubi!

I had such a hard time convincing my husband that it was good.
Now he's an addict! :katana:
