Hop on the Yamanote Line and get off at Meguro Station, from there, Tonki is just a short 5-minute (or less) walk. This is where you go if you what the classic Tokyo tonkatsu experience. The old wooden doors set the tone for this two-story restaurant that has been serving the deep fried delicacy since 1939.
There’s a lot going on in Waikiki, and to experience it all, you’ll need fuel..and I can’t think of anything better than a nice hot (or ice cold) cup of coffee. Turns out, there’s no shortage of coffee shops in Waikiki.
What a difference a few short years make. We first wrote about the Aloun Farms Pumpkin Patch in 2012. Exploration: Hawaii was a little over a year old and we had a small, yet loyal following. Five years later, we went back to Aloun Farms to do some pumpkin picking, this time, with a little pumpkin of our own.
Flour & Barley is always looking for ways to make your Waikiki dining experience that much better…they did it with brunch…and now they’re doing it with a festive Happy Hour selection of beers, cocktails, and food specials. They invited us down to sample some of their new offerings and we enjoyed it all. Happy Hour at Flour & Barley is daily from 2pm to 6pm and from 10pm to closing. What are you waiting for? Get down there!
Looking for a piece of aviation (and World War II) history during your visit to Hawaii? If so, then the Pacific Aviation Museum is a must visit. Located on Ford Island in the middle of historic Pearl Harbor, the Pacific Aviation Museum is home to a fine collection of aircrafts, including a P-40 fighter and a civilian plane that was airborne and shot during the attack, and a MiG-15 and F-86 Sabre aircraft which flew during the Korean War.
There’s nothing like a good getaway. On an island like Oahu, such a place might be hard to find, especially if you’re looking for it in the middle of Waikiki. Not to worry, because tucked away on Kuhio Avenue is a lively boutique hotel ready to give you that getaway: Vive Hotel Waikiki.
