This is the statue and the building at the beginning of the TV show Hawaii five0, but none of the recording is done inside. Nice for a phot op. John sells good hot dogsfrom a cart just around the corner from this, he is really friendly and enjoys a chat.

It was nice to see a little piece of historic Honolulu. We just stopped by to snap a few pictures. Fun to see the architecture of the surrounding buildings (and the palace across the street) but otherwise uneventful.

This was apart of a tour that we stopped at for about half an hour, had a good look around and just enjoyed the peace of the area. Quite a fascinating history in the area

Beautiful area in downtown Honolulu right across from the palace. Iconic image with nearby parking lot with meters. During the week it is a busy courts/federal building so perhaps make it a weekend stop to avoid more traffic.

Well worth a stop across the street from Ioni palace. Take a pic with the great King K that united the Hawaiian islands. No cost, but a must have pic. I took pics from several angles to show the whole effect.
