This house was built about 1920 on the beach at Hanalei. In 1937, Kenichi Tasaka rolled it on coconut trunks to this location over a mile away on the south (mauka) side of Kuhio Highway. The lily pond was created by Chock Chin before the Tasaka's took over the lease on the property owned by the Wilcox estate. Kenichi made many improvements to the spring-fed pond and surrounding gardens, creating one of the most beautiful views in Hanalei.

A few years after this photo was made, the State improved the drainage system along Kuhio Highway fronting the Tasaka's--lowering the water table and drying up the pond.

Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
