Puff the Magic Dragon
"Puff the Magic Dragon,
Lived by the sea,
And frolicked in the autumn mist,
In a land called Hanalei"
So goes the song. This is a view across the Hanalei Bay in Kauai, Hawaii. You can see Puff's brown eyes at the end of the outcrop. This island and the other Hawaiian islands have a big connection with Japan, and particularly Hiroshima. A large proportion of the Japanese immigrants who headed out here to work the plantations came from the Hiroshima area. You are much more likely to meet a Taniguchi here in Kauai than a Makanui.
