Aloha Monument

Aloha Monument Photo

  In June of 2014, Yurihama unveiled the Aloha Monument as it kicked off its first Aloha Carnival. The monument was constructed to commemorate both the 10th anniversary of the creation of the town through merging the former towns of Hawai, Tomari, and Tōgō, and to celebrate the ongoing friendship and exchange between Yurihama and Hawaii.

  The Aloha Monument is located in Yurihama’s Tōgō Hawai Seaside Park (near the Driving License Center and across the way from Hawai Yu~Town), against a breathtaking backdrop of the beauty of Lake Tōgō and the surrounding natural greenery. Attempting to capture just a bit of the aloha spirit, the monument is engraved with 2 hands making Hawaii’s shaka sign as well as a heart, making it a fun photo op for visitors to the park (especially couples!).

If you are ever in the area, stop on by and take your own photo posing in front of the Aloha Monument!☆
