About Us / Hawaii Square

About us / Hawaii Square

Tourism is the heart of Hawaii’s business. Stemming from our Aloha spirit, to give and to welcome is central to the character of these islands. Since 1980, HIS has been an important part of the fabric of Hawaii’s community. Through HAWAII SQUARE we hope to offer even a slice of the Hawaii community we have been so lucky to experience and be a part of.

Hawaii has more to offer than just tourism. We know this because over the more than forty years that we have been in Hawaii, we have come to learn of the importance this place holds in a lot of your hopes and desires – that you want to buy a house here, spread the business and splendor of Hawaii to Japan – we know that there many of you are just as passionate about these islands as we are and HAWAII SQUARE is here to help reach your dreams.
