First time I met an ukulele was when I came to Hawaii as a tourist in 2002, I bought it as a souvenir.  I had learned how to play an ukulele from Mr. Takayuki Mori, he is an award-winning ukulele luthier.  Meeting with him inspired me to build an ukulele.  In 2006, I had a chance to move to Hawaii with my family, and I decided to work for an ukulele factory.  After that, I had worked for two more other ukulele factories, and I could have learned different method of ukulele building from them.  In October 2013, I launched my own ukulele business, Honua Ukulele, for making an ukulele you like to play anywhere you go.
