Did I ever tell you how much I love living here? This is a visual tour of Kaka’ako via some of my Instagram pics over the past years….
The main reason for choosing Kaka’ako was the location. I’m a “townie.” Ala Moana Beach was my childhood playground.
I’m directly across from the Blaisdell Center, a place for concerts, plays, exhibits, sporting events, graduations, and the weekly Farmers’ Market.
I’m also just three blocks away from the Ward Entertainment Complex. We even have our midweek bible study at Mocha Jave Café at the Ward Centre.
There are a bunch of cool events in here in Kaka’ako. A popular one is the “Eat the Street” event across from the Mother Waldron Playground.
Kaka’ako is also a place for the “creatives.” There are three museums, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, the Hawai’i State Museum of Art (HiSAM,) and the Children’s Discovery Center.
There is always a buzz of activity at Honolulu Hale with book fairs, concerts, and the Christmas Lights.
We have a few nice places to eat as well. This is the Tan Tan Ramen from Goma Tei. I also like Asahi Grill, Fresh Café, the REAL a Gastropub, and the Whole Ox Deli, to name a few. I also enjoy walking on over to Chinatown for my phở fix….
For recreation and exercise, we have the Kaka’ako Waterfront Park and the UFC Gym.
So far, I’m enjoying Kaka’ako. So blessed. Looking forward to its bright future….
