Tomorrow marks the 125 years since the dedication of Uluhaimalama, Queen Lili’uokalani’s royal flower garden. The first plant was placed in the ground on evening of October 10th, when the Queen’s inner circle gathered under the cover of night. 〰️
Join us in remembrance tomorrow 12-2pm on the slopes of Puowaina.

This is not Diamond Head. It’s Punchbowl Crater, the location of the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. The Hawaiian name for this volcanic tuff cone is Puowaina (hill of sacrifice).

Sony Alpha 7R III. 85mm. f/5.6. 8 sec.
Took me a few hours to get this perfectly framed shot of lightning over Punchbowl (Pūowaina). Ugh, why can’t my luck be this great in other areas of my life?
I couldn’t find the shutter release cord —and I don’t think we ever bought one for this camera— so I had to trigger it manually. Is there an app perhaps?? I had been using the bulb setting for a bit, but my hands were too shaky and started getting sore. Thank goodness this is a mirrorless SLR. I set the shutter speed to 8 seconds, and that was it. About 20 tries later, I was lucky enough to get this shot at just the right time. I got a couple of nice photos facing south toward Ala Moana Shopping Center prior to moving my camera around the pitch black apartment, but they didn’t turn out as well as this one facing upper Makiki. Maybe I’ll get around to editing some of those others in a couple of years. 🤔😅😂
I’m pretty sure this is the fastest I’ve ever edited a photo. The storm is still going strong right now, but I’ve got to get some sleep before work, even though I REALLY want to get a shot of lightning above the Ala Moana Building. 😴 💤 .

Pūowaina/Puʻuwaina is a puʻu that was used for the placement of human sacrifices. Pū/Puʻu - hill, Waina - depository. Moʻolelo were told how kānaka were first drowned at Kewalo (outcry, resounding, echo) then taken to Pūowaina.
On January 4, 1949 the National Memorial Cemetary of the Pacific was established in Pūowaina when an unknown serviceman, killed in the attack on Puʻuloa (Pearl Harbor), was the first American buried there and this place was called Punchbowl due to its resemblance of a punch bowl. ʻO Pūowaina nō naʻe ka inoa o kēia wahi. #InoaWahi #huaolelookeiala #EOlaKaOleloHawaii #EAducation #AlohaAina #aloha #aina #hawaii #puu #moolelo #Puowaina #Puuwaina #Punchbowl #Kewalo #Puuloa #PearlHarbor #Oahu #nohona_hawaii

Mom and I walked the neighborhood and up the hill to Moanalua High School—which overlooks eastward toward the Kalihi flats, downtown Honolulu and the volcanic Puowaina or Punchbowl, and the Port of Honolulu shipyards, and toward the west at the slopes of eroded ancient volcanoes Āliamanu, Ālia pa'akai, and Makalapa. We ended up hiking for two hours. As students of Moanalua, I don’t think we truly appreciated the view we had of our island from above. #sunset #hawaiiansunset #oahusunset #honolulusunset #honolulu #oahu #hawaii #hawaiianafternoon #punchbowlhawaii #portofhonolulu #shipyards #moanalua #mohs #moanaluahighschool #saltlakehawaii #saltlakehonolulu #hiking #urbanhike #urbanhiking #longwalk #puowaina #aliamanu #aliapaakai #makalapa

C - jak cmentarz
Dzisiaj w Stanach Zjednoczonych obchodzimy Dzień Pamięci. Na Hawajach głównym miejscem obchodów tego dnia jest cmentarz wojskowy - National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific - często nazywany Arlingtonem Pacyfiku. Cmentarz ulokowany jest bardzo nietypowo - znajduje się bowiem ponad tętniącym życiem miastem - Honolulu, na wzgórzu zwanym przez Hawajczyków PUOWAINA - Wzgórzem Ofiar. Pochowano tu ponad 25.000 żołnierzy, którzy walczyli i oddali życie w obronie Ojczyzny. Wzgórze - to krater wygasłego przed wiekami wulkanu (Punchbowl Crater).
W dniu dzisiejszym na każdym grobie znajdzie się lei z żywych kwiatów - tradycyjne hawajskie podziękowanie (mahalo) dla tych, którzy zapłacili najwyższą cenę za wolność swojej Ojczyzny. Obchody będą, jak zawsze, bardzo uroczyste.
Cmentarz jest również atrakcją turystyczną. Odwiedzając cmentarz warto zatrzymać się na krawędzi krateru, w najwyższym punkcie Punchbowl i spojrzeć na rozciągające się w dole miasto. Panorama zapiera dech w piersiach - o czym, jak zawsze, zapewnia Was #bociannahawajach.

An extinct volcanic crater, home to a national treasure.

Locals call it Punchbowl, but ancient Hawaiians named this punchbowl-shaped volcanic crater Puowaina, Hill of Sacrifice. Sacrifices—as in human sacrifices to appease the gods of old. With its beautiful panoramic views of Honolulu and Diamond Head, matched with its powerful symbolism, Punchbowl National Cemetery attracts more visitors than almost anywhere else in Hawaii.

As one of the nation's most visited attractions, the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific will host ceremonies to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27, beginning at 8:30 a.m. 📹: Brett Uprichard

One of my happiest places on earth. If I left today, I’d feel fulfilled. Haven’t sat here and communed with my Tutu in 16 years. I miss her so much. Love that I got to visit with her today. ❤️❤️❤️ #tutu #misshereveryday #punchbowlcemetery #puowaina (P.S. My fingers are dirty because we were digging in the ground for the vase!)

It was an honor to offer a ceremonial lei at Punchbowl to commemorate the Day of Valor, also known as Araw ng Kagitingan, or Bataan and Corregidor Day. This day honors the brave American and Filipino soldiers who endured and stood strong against unimaginably horrific conditions during WWII in defense of democracy in the Pacific. #VoteTyler #PunchbowlNationalCemetery #Puowaina #ArawNgKagitingan #DayOfValor

パンチボールの国立太平洋記念墓地🇺🇸
アメリカに2つある国立記念墓地の1つ(もう片方はワシントンにあるらしい)
19世紀末にアメリカがハワイを併合する前,正確には1862年まで処刑場として使われていたとか,ちょうど2枚目の見晴らしのいい高台のあたりが現場だそうです(米国が併合する前の余談ですけどハワイの原住民は日本の明治政府に世話を頼みたかったようですね,今ジェット機で来ても7時間かかる日本によく頼んだなぁと思います)
クレーター内にできた墓地にWW1から始まってベトナム戦争などの戦死者の名前があります.
像の裏には太平洋戦争の日本の侵攻具合,1942からのアメリカの巻き返しの様子などが書かれておりました.
観光バスも来ないし(墓地に観光というのも変な話ですもんね)
花を供えに来る方以外ほとんど人もいなかったのですが,アメリカ人のお爺さんが写真を写してあげると向こうから話しかけて下さったので一緒に公園内を回りました,日本との戦争での戦没者の魂が多く眠っているので自分が日本人だと言うといい気はしないかなと思いましたが,打ち明けてみるとよく来たと言ってくれ気の良い人でした.
お墓のことをとやかく言うのもなんですが,ここに刻まれている名前は芝生の中にプレートが埋められており,全体は綺麗な公園のようになっております.日本の墓地が醸し出す様な独特の雰囲気が無くて落ち着いているので,こういうところに眠れたら幸せなのかもしれません.
