• Japanese Cultural Center of Kona - New Chamber Member

    February 28, 2022
    The Kona-Kohala Chamber of Commerce welcomes the Japanese Cultural Center of Kona as it's newest member. 
    Over one hundred years after the first generation of Japanese immigrants settled on the upland slopes and helped to build a premier coffee industry, a group of Kona residents coalesced to pursue a dream of developing a new Cultural Center to celebrate their ancestral heritage. Our beloved issei started from humble beginnings as coffee farmers and left a legacy that has evolved into a distinctive community which blends Japanese traditions and the spirit of Aloha.

    The Cultural Center is envisioned as a singular destination that will showcase Japanese-American contributions to the diversity that is Hawaii. It is meant to be a gathering place to share and perpetuate our culture, provide opportunities to maintain ties with today’s Japan, and provide facilities that can be enjoyed by the broader Kona community.

    The vision for the Cultural Center includes a complex of buildings and venues developed on land that would be large enough to accommodate future expansion. The buildings’ interior and exterior would be designed architecturally to evoke a Japanese ambiance. The complex would be powered by 100% renewable energy and built with environmentally sustainable techniques and materials where possible. Read More>>
