Well, my 20January2011 posting showed Misa Tamura (his wife's father found this gravestone) here:
We then toured the Daniel K Inouye Kilauea Lighthouse next door, which has spectacular views:
We then visited the Waniha Powerhouse, a legacy of Kenjiro Takahashi, my grandfather. This system:
was dedicated in 1906 at 3 MW, and today, 107 years later, with the same input, produces 3 MW.
We checked into the St. Regis, and the three of us enjoyed some wine with the pounding surf of Hanalei Bay in the background, a view from my room:
We went down to Kauai Grill for dinner,which Diane and Ivan seemed to enjoy. I had my reservations. I loved the salmon sushi (over crispy/burnt teriyaki coated rice):
which was served with an excellent Kato Marlborough Sauvignon Blance. Next was a fancy tomato soup with a Hugel 'Gentil' from Alsace and garlic bread:
The third course was a rather bland steamed onaga. Sesame vinaigrette, shiitake and asparagus sound enticing, but perhaps I was getting filled:
The wines were all fine, but, about the cuisine, I guess I'm getting spoiled by my Michelin 3 Star, Pellegrino Top 50 and Chaine des Rotisseurs adventures. The total price for three was less than a few of my international lunches just for myself, so I guess I'm getting picky and fussy.
Tomorrow, on to Poipu.
