Collaboration: University of Hawaii - Hilo


Goal: Learners developed a better understanding and appreciation for the history of Japan and how Sadako Sasaki's story relates to Hawaii


  • Learner engaged in live interactive presentation of the story of Sadako, as it was told by her brother Masahiro Sasaki

  • Participants took part in sharing Sadako's legacy of peace by folding a paper crane that was donated to the Hiroshima Children's Peace Monument


We have a deeper appreciation for the Japanese culture by listening to the story of Sadako. I read her story but was able to get a better understanding through her brother's perspective. (student)
