Sakura Safari: Annual Cherry Blossom Tour of Wahiawa

January 26 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Join us for a 90-minute special trolley ride through Wahiawa Town and experience the abundance of cherry blossom, of sakura trees in this quaint residential and still a bit rural community. Members of the Wahiawa Nikkei Civic Association host the Saturday morning cultural affair. Also enjoy the world famous KC Waffle Dogs!

Date: January 26, 2019

Time: 9:00 and 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM

Place: meet at Wahiawa Hongwanji Mission, 1067 California Avenue

Cost: $20.00 for trolley ride.

This “Sakura Viewing – Hana Mi” is also referred to as our “Sakura Safari” as we celebrate a wonderful tradition of the first sakura tree planting with seedlings from Naha, Okinawa, and the continued propagation by Wahiawa residents. Visit the cool climate of Wahiawa which keeps the sakura trees beautiful and in good health and learn about this rich historical project.

Seating on trolley by reservations only. Seating guaranteed with receipt of payment. Optional Special Japanese Bento from Marian’s – $8.00.

Please RSVP via phone @ 291-6151 or e-mail: renemansho@hawaii.rr.com to Rene by January 18, 2018 due to limited seating on the trolley.

  1. For 2 weeks I have left phone messages {4 total messages} for Rene Mansho for info on the Wahiawa Sakura tours. As of today, she has not returned any of my calls. If she is the contact person, why does she not return calls???

    • Hi Diana,

      Sorry you’ve had trouble reaching Rene. We simply publish the community events and are not directly affiliated with her tour. Have you tried emailing her? Her email is: renemansho@hawaii.rr.com
      I just texted her with your name and email address. I hope she gets back to you!

      Keoni Ahlo
      President, WCBA
