I am so thankful for Mr.Genshiro Kawamoto generosity for the low income and the homeless family.I myself is a single parent with five children trying to make it day by day.I work seven days a week just to take care of my five children and to have a roof over our head.I am intrested in writing to Mr.Kawamoto a letter,but would like to know the adress to send it to.

You should also write to Donald Trump and tell him to get off of his ass and do something for the low income people and not just for the very rich ! He now owns a big part of Waikiki !

Also write Indiana's governor Mitch Daniels. He doesn't live in the governor's mansion, and it's sitting vacant.

Yeah he does and guess how he attained those lands. He had the state of hawaii condemn the properties who wouldn't sell it to him and then the state sold it to him a little cheaper than what he was going to pay the owners. How sad, he pratically stole the land from the poor owners.(the part he owns was a poor part of Waikiki, that definately has skyrocketed in luxury since he took over.

Have you been down on Lewers street recently ? When I lived in Waikiki in the 90's I worked over at the Waikiki Parc Hotel and once in awhile I ate over at the Perry Boys Smorgy on Lewers street I imagine much of that is now gone . I don't think I could afford to live in Waikiki now !

That is too bad as I did enjoy going to Perry Boys , hope the one on Kuhio Ave. hasn't closed , I lived on Ohua Ave. and I would sometimes go over to the Perry Boys to eat my dinner then have an enjoyable walk along the beach and listen to some of the best Hawaiin music in the world that came from some of the larger hotels ! Waikiki a great place I sure miss it !

Like all of Hawaii, he couldn't have bought it if it wasn't for sale in the first place. Stop whining.
