Description

This history of Hawaii began about 1,500 years ago, when Polynesians ruled the kingdom in the North Pacific Ocean until it was annexed and later incorporated as the 50th US state. Made up of more than 100 islands —including O‘ahu which is known for the Waikīkī region, Hawai‘i, and Maui— the archipelago has long been an important hub for air and ocean transport. Now, the hospitality industry has become a growth engine as people from all over the world flock to this popular vacation destination. Led by the law of the “Aloha Spirit” that emphasizes respect and affection for others, daily life actively reflects the long-standing traditions and history of aboriginal Hawaiians, creating the unique sensibility and atmosphere that continues to attract outsiders today.

Taking care of yourself leads to not only taking care of your family but also the Earth in which we live. I think these three forms of care are better harmonized in Hawai‘i than any other place. That’s why Hawaiian locals generally live happy and healthy lives.
Ty McLaren, Cofounder of Koa

Hawai‘i makes you think about what it means to exist on an island with so many different people in a small space. It’s very natural here for such different people to get together and share their lives. Sometimes it seems like a social experiment. It gives me inspiration for my work, too.
