Every July, Yokohama hosts Aloha Yokohama, featuring authentic Hawaiian music, hula dances, food and cultural events.

This year was special because it marked the 50th year since Hawaii became a state and the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Yokohama port. To celebrate the special year, the event was held for five days starting July 22, two days longer than past years, said Aloha Yokohama 2009 Organizing Committee official Sachiko Miyazaki.
