The Isonaga Store

Isonaga Family Store

Instead of competing for the local Japanese trade, Isonaga Store gears its trade to the needs and wants of Filipino bachelors employed by Koloa Sugar Company.

The store sells iriko (parched small sardine), shrimp, bagoong (fermented fish sauce), codfish and various canned goods.

Trousers, shirts, lunch pail bags and tabi (Japanese socks), all sewn by Herbert’s mother, are also available.

Tokuichi helps with customers’ mail to the Philippines.
