The Search for Signs of Hawaiian Life

For Sunday, March 31, 2013


FAMILY NAME: While visiting relatives in Hino, Tokyo, over New Year's, Eddy Iwamura of Aiea discovered that old apartment buildings are being torn down and new developments are going up, including single-family housing. She says Hino is a prime location near mass transit, and "how clever to give a Hawaiian name for the project, because the houses would probably be as expensive as ours here!"

Ohana in Japanese is flower with a honorific as commonly used by the Japanese. To be polite, one uses the honorific "O" preceding whatever the item is or are. Example, the word guest in Japanese uses "o kyaku san", or dance as "odori". The word "ohana" has another meaning in Japanese, meaning nose as in hana, politely it is spoken with the word "ohana"
