Makiki Christian Church, Honolulu

A  L  O  H  A !     from Honolulu
 Is this a 
Samurai Castle 
in Japan?








 No! 
It is Makiki Christian Church
 right here in Honolulu!











" Inspired by the early Edo period 
(late sixteenth–early seventeenth century) 
Himeji Castle in Japan, 
this church is the only 
Christian church in the United States 
to be modeled after a 
sixteenth-century Japanese castle. "












A Vital Thriving Part of Our Honolulu
and one of my personal
favorite buildings on  
our islands.

" I love 
the sea's sounds 
and the way it 
reflects the sky. 
The colors that shimmer 
across its surface 
are unbelievable. . . 
surprises me every time. "

hear the sailors cry, 
smell the sea, 
and feel the sky 
let your soul & spirit fly, 
into the mystic...”
