Honua ukulele is a high musical instrument quality with affordable price and Aloha.

I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan.
I came to Hawaii first time as a tourist in 2002 and met and bought a small four string instrument 'Ukulele' as a souvenir. And then I learned how to play an ukulele from Mr. Takayuki Mori, who is an award-winning ukulele luthier. Meeting with him also inspired me to build an ukulele.
In 2006, I had a chance to move to Hawaii with my family, and I decided to work for an ukulele factory. After that, I had opportunities to work for two more ukulele factories, These experiences gave me a chance to learn different methods of ukulele building.
In October 2013, I launched my own ukulele business named Honua Ukulele. Honua means the mother earth in Hawaiian.
