Hanauma bay is a fucking bleached out coral wasteland largely inhabited by fat fucks from middle America in rented fins and black knee high socks.

Avoid this shit at all cost.

Genki... you can get this level of sushi anywhere.

I didnt eat a lot of sushi when I lived there, but Akasaka comes to mind. Actually, Yohei is much better, but a bit far (u gotta take a bus), but worth it.

where would you suggest snorkeling to see some interesting stuff?

also where would you go kayaking?

forget genki and go to tokkuri tei in kapahulu or sasabune on king st.

for kayaking, rent one at kailua bay and paddle over to lanikai beach, the nicest beach on the island.

Forgot to mentiont this, +1 on Shark's Cove for snorkeling.

Also, Tokkuri-tei was good little hole in the wall type spot, but it gets busy, so make reservations or go a little early if its a fri/sat.

Yeah me neither just thought you could shed some light on it

well you can buy drugs pretty much anywhere. most drug dealers b mobile in hawaii. there are krakhouses, but not in chinatown. there's a police substation there! not to mention with all the shitty new clubs, it's businessman/college student/yuppie central. whores....you could get one, but why would you want one from chinatown? GROSS! guns...maybe, but it's not as if honolulu chinatown has a reputation for selling that shit.

there is gambling parlors and mahjong, but this is actually universal of all chinatown throughout the world.

when ppl rent stuff like jetskis/kayaks/surf boards are there usually just dudes on the beach with this stuff that you go up to or are there like legit companies and stuff with actual buildings?

it's usually a shop. i've never seen a rental place actually on the sand unless you're renting surfboards in waikiki. you rent the equipment in the shop and wheel it across the street to the beach.

i'll be spending a couple of months in HI next year.

I need to commute to queen's medical. Are there affordable / temporary housing options there? Will I get raped?

Do I need a car?

Can I score j beezys there?

Herp,

You will be competing with Univ students for housing, and depending on what type/level of place u wanna live rent is not gonna be cheap. I paid 750 for a studio apt in 06, and before that I lived in a dorm where rent was 450, but bathroom/kitchen was shared.

I would say that if you bring your barspinzzzz tarck machine you dont need a car. Your commute shouldnt be bad 15-40(max) minutes depending where you live, but do expect to be the sweaty mutherfucker at the office. I never had a car and was fine, but it does limit you as to where you can go on the island; north shore and the better beaches are not really bike able.

Jbeezy shall be scored.

Are there nice apartments for rent in Honolulu?

I'm going there next year just to check it out but

I might move to HI f'reals in a couple of years.

HI sounds like the closest thing to living in Japan.

I'm tired of living in the US (esp east coast).

there are many nice apartments!

how much can afford a month for rent? just tell your parents to buy.

if you jap, you're basically gonna wanna live in a certain sector of honolulu. which the native barbarians refer 2 as simply "town."

just find something either in a 96815 or 96814 zip code and you'll be all set.

honestly it's alittle different 4 me then it would be for you cause i got some investments here and considering our age differences, plus without getting too much into it the company i'm involved with pays alot of my living expenses. buying a condo esp if you jap is a great investment. though the tourist industry is probably not what it was compared to a couple years ago, if you own a unit in a decent and jap-respected area you can definitely find longstay tourist renters who you can rob for astronomical profits, or you can just rent to regular tenants for suggested market prices.

basically because you are jap and can speak good english (from what i know) there will be to worlds available to you. you can feel like u at home, yet will have some of the merits of living in "america." pls hawaii to japland airfare is pretty cheap (imo). my ideas of fun may be different than yours, but i'm pretty sure we both like nomikai, konpa, nanpa, jap food, bbq parties, yacht parties and the like. i don't know, when shit gets 2 boring i just go somewhere. anyway if you have any specific inquires just pm.

i tell u one thing, but hawaii has opened more doors as far as biz compared to tokyo. you'd be surprised at the network pumps/connections that exist in the hawaii-jap community.

Who lives here and what do you do with your lives now that Leilow closed? Other than Aloha Rag, are there any stores worth going to? I'm here when I'm not doing school.

Jules first moved to that upstairs row of stores because rent was "half the price" and shortly thereafter began to hold mega-sales (which I sadly was not present for) and then just ended up closing shop. Pretty sad as he was definitely the friendliest shop owner I've ever encountered.
