Japanese workers were often imported or emigrated to the islands to work the sugar cane plantations. This cemetery and the beautiful headstones was once neglected and hidden under a six foot high growth of Johnson grass. What I found out online was that a local citizen and friends cleared the area and formed a group to maintain the cemetery. What a kind and respectful thing to do. It was a beautiful site.
