I’m surprised that I didn’t know about this. There’s a movie, from Japan, that was shot on location on the Big Island (in Honokaa) called “Honokaa Boy.” It’s interesting that films like these from Japan that are shot off location, like say Okinawa, feature similar story lines and quirky island characters. I’m hoping to see the film selected to be shown in this year’s HIFF lineup. Film’s trailer on YouTube.
Hopefully with two mugs of coffee downed, I’ll be able to stay up and finish up my itinerary for the upcoming trip to Tokyo. The only day I have planned is my visit to the Ghibli Museum. I already have areas in Tokyo I want to visit like Akihabara, Harajuku, Roppongi, Ginza, to name a few, but I’m trying to come up with places to check out too. BTW, if there’s something you want me to pick up for you, leave me a DM on Twitter or a comment here and I’ll take your request into consideration.
