Hawaii Tourism Authority

Festivities to celebrate 2020 continue! The Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai'i recently held its popular New Year’s ‘Ohana Festival, which tourism dollars helped to fund. Check out the video below to see some of the highlights from Hawai‘i’s largest festival celebrating Japanese New Year traditions.

Hawai‘i Tourism is also supporting the JCCH’s new Temple Talk Story Series, which will visit some of the Buddhist temples on Hawai‘i Island and Maui later this year, promoting cultural exchange across the state.
