We are the first Hawaiian hula group to be organized in Kyoto. “Poni” means “purple” and “ohe” means “bamboo” in the Hawaiian language. It also refers to something of high quality. We revere the Hawaiian spirit and practice our hula with love, appreciation and a smiling face.
Our group is from the city of Kyoto, known for its history and traditional culture. We would like to share the sound of the wonderful taishogoto with you. We will be performing songs that are familiar such as “Sakura Sakura” and “Sukiyaki”. Please come to enjoy our songs, to clap and sing along with us.
