The Imin Center at the University of Hawaii is named in honor of the early Japanese immigrants to Hawaii.

in 1885, the first group of 943 government-sponsored Japanese immigrants (Kan'yaku Imin) enters Hawai'i under the treaty between the governments of Japan and the Hawaiian Kingdom. They work on sugar plantations under three-year contracts. In total, there are 26 groups until the termination of the government-sponsored immigration practice in 1894.

The center has a Tea House and Japanese style gardens complete with koi.

What a gorgeous shot Selvin! Absolutely love the framing...composition is superb! Vanishing points are really shown off with your choice of perspective.

Also love the story you provide..thank you! I would also like to thank you for this week's challenge.

Nicely done, Selvin. excellent composition. Had you taken this picture from a different location without the trees framing the main subject, it would have lost some of the attraction. I also like the lighting showing a very good exposure.

Folks, thanks for your comments.

Yes, it is a lovely place to study. During the heyday of the Kennedy era it was provided with ample funds and the Center then known as the East-West Center flourished. However, things have dramatically changed and now the efforts are to have it concentrate on studies of more local relevant issues such as the waves of immigrants e.g. japanese.

Aloha

Study??? Humm, that would be tough! I canpicture myself wondering around with the headset on listening to some good jazz with my camera hanging around my neck looking for photographic opportunities like this...it sounds better than studying, doesn't it? Perhaps I'm too far past those days!!!
