Ukulele Picnic in Hawaii
This winter was very cold and it snowed a lot in Japan.
It did not snowed so hard at HOSCO's area but many region were damaged
by unusual heavy snowfall.
Far away from such a cold place, The Ukulele Picnic was held in Hawaii in February.
This event is held by the leader of Ukulele Music in Japan Mr. Kazuyuki Sekiguchi
once a year.
Many Japanese and Hawaiian ukulele players perform and more than 5,000 people join
and enjoy the music.

HOSCO supported this event as a cooperator and showed the Big Island Ukuleles
at our booth.
Of course, our electric series were very poplar among Hawaiian people.

Thank you for reading through the Hosco News.
