Wallace Teruya

Wallace Teruya

“Kewalo Inn was a fairly nice, nice restaurant, attracting busy people—businessmen, fishermen, you know. Early in the morning lots of fishermen used to come have breakfast, then they go out fishing [on] fishing boats, yeah. So later, that restaurant became busy, so Mr. Uehara built a second floor. And that attracted lots of local businessmen, legislators, Mainland guests, too, you know. Serving steak, lobster, frog legs, you know, all kinds.” —Wallace Teruya
