This site was created to raise awareness about the community-driven preservation efforts on behalf of a historic Shinto shrine on the island of O`ahu in the State of Hawai`i. It is known as the Wakamiya Inari Shrine, and 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of its founding. Please enjoy the articles and multimedia projects on this site — and learn about the journey of this unique cultural treasure. The shrine is part of an outdoor museum at Hawaii’s Plantation Village in Waipahu. Photo above taken by Kevin Kawamoto. All photos taken by Kevin Kawamoto unless otherwise noted.
