Hawaiian History with Britain and Japan

30 June 2016, London

Speaker: Pauline Chakmakjian


Beautiful beaches as well as stunning natural wonders and scenery are associated with the Hawaiian island chain, but there is so much more to this Pacific paradise than these and Pearl Harbor. Hawaii is also the only American State to have had a working royal palace.


This lecture will look at the connection between British and Hawaiian monarchs, Japanese immigration to Hawaii, and the Japanese experience there from arrival to the present day.

Please let us know if you would like to take an optional tour of the Freemason’s Hall at 5.15 for 5.30pm.


Pauline Chakmakjian is a Visit Kyoto Ambassador and a writer and speaker on Japanese and British Masonic history.
