The service is great and the food, fresh and delicious. If you like Misoyaki Butterfish, Maguroya knows how to make it just right. There are a ton of options to choose from their menu.
The restaurant itself is a small, cozy place tucked within other shops located in the Kaimuki Area. There's parking at the meter in front of the restaurant or behind it for a minimal price.
For $12 dollars, the Misoyaki Butterfish lunch special includes Miso soup, salad, rice, tsukemono (pickled vegetables), and a fried ebi (shrimp) ball. Desert is 2 pieces of fruit. For $3.00 more, you can add sashimi. It's a great lunch option!

Here's a photo of Diamond head at night. I thought I captured a shooting star, but I realize now it might've been a place instead.
The ocean can be so calming! I captured this picture yesterday as the sun set on Waikiki beach.
Waikiki beach at night! It's a lively place on the streets of Waikiki at night and an incredibly beautiful place to be at during sunset.
Diamond head glows as the sun slowly sets.

On the way to Bellows, I noticed how lucky the people who live in the area must be! There are beautiful mountains in their backyards.
The drive along the road to Bellows is amazing. The sky is SO unbelievably blue especially in the summertime.
For the firs time ever, I did not get knocked down by the waves and tumble in the water like I normally do. I had a great time at Bellows. It was a hot, beautiful summer day and the water was tame, just like how I like it. I can't wait till next weekend!

My husband and I are the type of people who love to explore. As soon as we arrived on the Big Island, we found our hotel and dropped off our bags. We immediately headed out the door as soon as we could. One of the first places we visited was "South Point," considered the southernmost tip of the United States.
Upon approaching South Point, there were towering windmills with cattle and horses roaming the area. The road to South Point can be a bit rocky because it's on a narrow, dirt road. However, the view is worth the drive.
Before reaching Jaggar Museum, you may notice steam coming from the ground. It is pretty cool to see.
At Jaggar Museum, one can look into Kilauea Crater, one of Hawaii's active volcanoes. It is a truly amazing place to visit!
At the information center and at Jaggar Museum, you may notice the maps, art, and other items of interest. There is also a gift shop.
After the information center and the museum closed, we decided to continue exploring the park.
There are multi-million research institutes (space observatories) a top Mauna Kea and it's incredible to see.
Although my husband and I only spent three days in the Big Island, it was one of our most memorable trips ever. There's so much to see and do on the Big Island! In fact, three days definitely isn't enough time, but what we did experience will definitely last a lifetime.
