I Braved the Arashi Blast

No, I didn’t go to the Arashi Blast in Hawaii concerts this past weekend, but I did brave the second best place, Ala Moana Center. You couldn’t escape Arashi while walking the mall, especially the Shirokiya end. Here’s front and center of Shirokiya. Across the way at LeSportsac. By the koi ponds. Many tourists were taking […]

The Arashi Hooded Towel Is Glorious

While cruising the Kailua community on this hot and humid Saturday, I saw it and instantly understood the gloriousness of the Arashi Blast in Hawaii hooded towel. Japanese tourists were walking around Kailua town with the sun blazing and sweat glistening. But a few of them were wearing their Arashi hooded towels. Genius! The hoods provided protection […]

Of the 15,000 tourists coming to see the Arashi Blast in Hawaii concerts, majority are from Japan, but there are fans from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Korea.

Arashi Blast: No Power

If your electricity goes out on Friday or Saturday, you gotta blame the Arashi Blast concerts. With HECO already urging customers to cut back on consumption with the Kalaeloa plant out of commission awaiting parts and temperatures soaring above 90 degrees almost daily, you know the Arashi concert is going to push electrical demand near […]

Arashi Blast: American Convertibles

While you’re stuck in traffic, take a look around at the surrounding cars. See more than your normal share of American muscle car convertibles? Seemingly the vehicle of choice for Hawaii tourists, I’m guessing the influx of visiting fans for the upcoming Arashi Blast in Hawaii concerts has snapped up all convertible rentals. So take […]

Arashi Blast: Westbound Traffic

When I saw the horrid westbound traffic this afternoon, I wondered if another Exercise Urban Unrest was underway. The rationale being to observe the traffic crush to Ko’olina this weekend as Arashi takes the stage in their Blast in Hawaii concerts. That’s 15,000 fans headed to the west side for 5:30 concerts on Friday and […]
