On the big island we visited brother in law and sister in law. They recently retired and decided to settle down at Hawaii, part of reasons is that he has developed a deep passion on ocean during serving at navy and she likes to stay somewhere in the US but also close to her home country – Japan.
Japanese lady is well known for their gentleness and kindness. At their house sister in law taught us how to make sushi. She also showed us her collection of kimonos, then she encouraged and helped us try on her kimonos. It is undoubtedly an experience of a very different culture.
