A Japanese TV show called, “ハワイに恋して” (Hawaiʻi Ni Koishite), also known as “Crazy for Hawaiʻi”, is featuring ʻAi Love – it airs tonight (January 7, 2017) in Japan!
The hosts of the show (Chef/Japanese Model, Maya Merrifield and famous Japanese comedian, Azuma) spent a day at ʻAi Love where Maya and Azuma interviewed Kevin Kishida, the lomilomi kumu (teacher) of Ola I Ka Pono, showcased some of our delicious food, chatted a bit with me (Malia, the owner of ʻAi Love) and conducted a cooking demo in our garden! We had a wonderful time with Maya, Azuma and their team from Japan. Thank you so much for including us in your TV program and allowing us to share our restaurant with the world!
Hawaiʻi Ni Koishite TV show has been airing in Japan for 5 years. The new cast with Maya and Azuma started in January 2016 and has been on for a year now – and from what we understand, it is a wildly successful show!
