Mark Fujishige, left, of Honolulu and Matthew Q. Ackerman of Kailua got a taste of Hawaii's recent past when they stumbled into a small store in Kamakura, Japan. They found aloha shirts with the Liberty House label and Society of Seven tumblers (Mark remembers his grandmother had a set). The store also was selling T-shirts featuring logos of local high schools and past Merrie Monarch Festivals, among other Hawaii paraphernalia.
