Hey there! I’m Takara, thirty-something wife, mother-of-three, homeschooler and fitness professional living in Hawaii.  I’m an Alabama native whose had the pleasure of living in DC, Tokyo, & San Diego and I love that we now call Hawaii home. Our family relocated from Tokyo to Hawaii shortly after the earthquake and tsunami happened in Japan in 2011. Since then, we’ve been busy settling in and finding our life here.

I know what you must be thinking. Nope, we’re not a military family. Sorry to disappoint you. My husband G and I met while working for the same headhunting (executive search) company in Tokyo. We fell in love, married, and six years + three sweet and silly little girls later, here we are!

Fun Little Ohana was created to share my discoveries and experiences in Hawaii related to family, health, and fitness. I love exploring the island with my family, and sharing my discoveries and experiences with others. I update this blog at least 2-3 times a week and blog about local businesses, kid-friendly events & activities, healthy & fitness products and services around the island. When I’m not blogging or spending time with my family, you can find me teaching a Stroller Strides, Stroller Barre, Fit4Babay or Body Back class with Fit4Mom Honolulu (My Other Baby).

Mahalo for reading and I’m looking forward to getting to know you!

  1. Hi, Takara!

    Lovely blog! My name is Clarice and I’m a new mama living in Japan. My husband and I have been contemplating if Japan is really the right place to raise our little boy. It’s far from our families, he would possibly be bullied, and we are limited to mainly teaching English.

    Recently, we became interested in Hawaii as a possible home. The lifestyle seems more our speed and it’s a bit closer to my family in Texas. I’m a freelance/aspiring children’s book artist and my husband is an English teacher from the UK.

    I guess I’m reaching out to you in hopes that you have any advice about making the move from Japan and/or finding jobs.

    Takara, thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Any advice helps!

    Thank you!
