Aloha Chinatown Honalulu
As part of urban renewal or some such scheme, a newish structure is shown in the pictures. I think it is a parking garage. The top band of the structure is decorated with reliefs showing the various animals of the chinese zodiac. I thought it a subtle chinese element; the building itself reminded me of the By Ward Market building here in Ottawa, with parking garage above shops.
In the next post, there will be more conspicuously Chinese/oriental touches on some new buildings in Honalulu.
