Hello - Aloha - Konnichi wa
These greetings are representative of the three cultures I grew up with. I am a 4th generation Japanese American from Honolulu, Hawaii.. Spending my infancy in Hawaii, my parents would drop us off at Ala Moana Beach for a day of sun and fun with a picnic basket. That didn’t last long because my dad’s schooling relocated us to the Los Angeles area were I grew up.
I lived up and down California spending time in San Diego, Sacramento and Campbell and now Redondo Beach. Graduating from San Jose State University with a degree in microbiology/chemistry. I worked for a major biopharmaceutical firm before going into renovating apartments and property management.
Kona, Hawaii is where I spent a magical 11 days on vacation. Everything was perfect....the feeling of swaying in a sling under a coconut tree while the biggest full moon I ever saw with sparkling stars were high above. Add the warmth of the sun, hospitality of the people, and the mystical nature of being on sacred Hawaiian grounds creates a memory that one will never forget. To honor this memory I named my store Kona Moon.
My items are constructed with meticulous care ( which is why I liked analytical chemistry) and designs that are timeless. I take a lot of pride in my work and is backed with a guarantee that you are satisfied with your purchase.
With this in mind, I try to create things that spark enjoyment for me and hope that it sparks something inside of you too.
