This April and May were colder than usual and there was a lot of rain, which may have delayed the blooming of the summer flower, the Shower Tree, but the Shower Tree at Kapiolani Park is now in full bloom.
Diamond Head's summer version is also starting to lose some of its greenery.
Hawaii is at its best at this time of year when the flowers are in full bloom.

Artists who are taking on the challenge in New York, the entertainment capital of the world,

This has been going on for a long time.


In recent times, borderless globalization is progressing more and more on the Internet, social media, YouTube, etc.

With the rapid development of AI

It's instantly translated and the language barrier has disappeared.

Near future,

It's spawning season for the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, the famous Hawaiian state fish, and as shown in the photo, the male clings to the female, points his mouth and makes a "buzzing" noise.
Then when they start moving around with their tails touching each other, it looks like they've fallen in love.
Love stories in the underwater world are also wonderful.

I went on a farm tour to Kahuku on Hawaii's North Shore during the season when fruit is at its best.
You can tour the farm and sample Hawaii's first acai berries, delicious apples, bananas, Kahuku papayas, cacao, and more.
There is also a cafe that serves delicious farm pizza and smoothies, so it is recommended for those who want to try Hawaii's delicious vegetables and fruits.

<NYに世界最大のバンクシーミュージアムOPEN>

The mysterious street artist Banksy

Banksy Museum exhibits the world's largest collection of 160 pieces

Opening on May 15, 2024 in the Soho area of Manhattan, New York!

Speaking of Banksy,
Although based in the UK,

A mysterious artist who appears out of nowhere one day, suddenly leaving behind his works all over the world.

Expressing serious realities such as war and peace, social and political messages through humor and satire.

The message and the location of the painting,

There are pros and cons,

The work is

They have disappeared in conflict zones, or they have been erased without permission because they were drawn without permission, or they have been quickly removed without a trace for the purpose of resale...

All the works that were erased or removed

Several selected talented artists have created life-size replicas

It is being exhibited in New York, with a street atmosphere intact.


I think most of Banksy's works are viewed on small screens such as smartphone photos,

It's amazing that you can see everything here in life-size.

If you come to NY, this is a must see!

< Banksy Museum NYC >
277 Canal Street, New York, 10013

Hafaadai! Hello everyone.

As many of you may already know,
Hyatt Regency Saipan will close on June 30, 2024.
I haven't been in touch with you recently,
I went to Miyako Restaurant, which I often visited when I was a Hyatt member.

Truly Hyatt quality!
All the dishes were very delicious and left me full.
It was a very satisfying dinner, but I felt a little sad...

<NYの新名所ハドソンヤードのシンボルやっと再開>

One of the new attractions in New York after the coronavirus pandemic is

Hudson Yards is a district in west Manhattan where buildings tower like a futuristic city.


In the center is the "Vessel" that was released in 2019.

Its unique beehive-like design made it an instantly popular symbol.


Then shortly after that, coronavirus hit

During the strict curfew in New York

As people continued to take their own lives in this deserted building,

It closed in 2021.


This vessel that I had only seen from the outside

Finally!
Before long

It was announced that it will reopen after iron fences have been installed to ensure safety.


We will let you know again when the opening date is announced.


New York is back to its peak as tourists from around the world return to pre-COVID numbers

Another bright piece of news⭐︎

I went to MARA, a Mediterranean restaurant that just opened this month.
This is a healthy dish made with delicious ripe tomatoes, vegetables, olives, feta cheese and high-quality olive oil.
The photo shows BOCOCHINI with fresh mozzarella and roasted beets.
Chicken kebab and Roman-style pizza. The interior is stylish and comfortable.
It's located in front of Ala Moana Shopping Center, so it's easy to access.
Hawaii is a place where you can eat food from all over the world. Please come and visit us next time you are in Hawaii.

Last night we had dinner for my son's birthday.

Next time I'll try steak night.
