Kakaʻako Street Art

It has been far too long since I last posted and I have no real excuse other than I have been traveling. We were back in Honolulu and I discovered the Kakaʻako district. The area has an interesting history. Going back not too many years ago, it was a thriving Native Hawaiian community with agricultural terraces, fishpond farming, salt making, wetland agriculture and native cemeteries. King Kamehameha the First had a home in the area. Later it became an industrial and warehouse zone. Today it is the hot, hip area to live sandwiched between Ala Moana and Chinatown. It is also an area of amazing wall murals and home to many local artists who will probably be driven out by higher and higher rent prices as more and more condos rise in Kakaʻako. Let me share a few of the images I enjoyed while cycling and walking in Kakaʻako.
