What a heart warming idea. This is the most positive action that I have ever heard come out of the Barking Sands area. Bravo!
Keep up the good work and hopefully we will all have access to the information that you gain about these souls.

I believe there's a typo on Isohachi Shintani Date of Death as 1859. Its probably his date of birth.
More than likely, the earliest grave is of a later date.
A translation of dates would be based on the following:
1867 = Meiji 1
1912 = Taisho 1
1926 = Showa 1
1 year = 1 Japanese year. i.e. Showa 2 = 1927.
According to Wikipedia, the first 153 Japanese immigrants arrived in Hawaii on June 19, 1868.
A Mr. Tsuchiya was the principal at Mana School. His descendants include many of the prominent Tsuchiyas on Kauai including Val Tsuchiya. And Dr. Jeffrey Okamitsu, Ph.D. of Maryland (via Kam School). Tsuchiya Road abutting Waimea High School was named after him.

I just came down from the old Japanese Cemetary across the street from me. I go clean up the broken bottles and rubbish that some people leave. It appears that tree roots are being removed. I don't know the history of the cemetary because we just moved here from Detroit. It is so serene there. Some of the beautiful tombstones are being knocked around in the process. I enjoyed your article. I live at 3280 Hailima. I am an artist and I sculpt. This is why I love to clean and view the writing.
