Kepaniwai Heritage Gardens

Kepaniwai was once the site of an ancient Hawaiian battle where Maui Warriors were killed by the invading force of Kamehameha I. So much blood was shed that day that the waters of Iao stream ran red.

Now, Kepaniwai has become a state park that is filled with structures that highlight Maui's various ethnic cultures and the buildings they lived in. Being part Japanese, I was facinated by the Japanese Tea house and gardens.
