Celebrating the long-standing relationship between Japan’s Imperial Family and the Kingdom of Hawaii, we welcome our Golden Week visitors to savor some Hawaiian healing.
The process of healing unfolds in many steps. Drawing on lessons of hula, lei making, lomilomi, ceremony and oli (chanting), students weave healing practices into a tailored treatment that addresses body, mind and spirit.
The activity is led by kumu hula, Malia Helela, traditionally trained hula instructor, lomilomi practitioner and cultural advisor. Our native Japanese translator, Eriko Jones, has a decade of experience in Hawaiian practices with Kumu Malia.Find out more »
