Passport To Pahoa — Pahoa Business Directory

  passport to pahoaWalk through the narrow main street, on Pahoa Village Road, and catch plenty of glimpses of the town’s rich history. 

  Along with lumber and sugar, Pahoa was home to the Pahoa Rubber Co. and Pahoa Soda Works. Akebono Theater, built approximately 1919 and among Hawaii’s oldest theaters, is adjacent to and owned by Luquin’s Mexican Restaurant.   

Within the historic corridor there are lanes leading to ‘cane’ houses and garden-filled yards blossoming with anthurium, hapu’u, orchids, and tangerine trees. Pahoa at one time was known for not just its anthuriums, but also its tangerines.

  Early 20th century Pahoa was lined with shops ranging from tofu makers, tabi makers, shoemakers, and tea salesmen.   At one time there were four hotels, largely servicing businesspeople that took the train out to Pahoa and couldn’t return to Hilo in one day. The old Tara Hotel, which houses Puna Style today, is among the Standing remnants of Old Pahoa.  Jan’s Barber Shop, on the Kalapana side of the old boardwalk, is the business with the most longevity at more than 60 years.  Following is a directory of the businesses located in Pahoa Village.
