Are you familiar with the word “naruhodo”? It means “oh, I see” or “now I get it”.  The way you use naruhodo is if there is something you don’t understand, and someone explains it to you, you say…. “Ahhh, Naruhodo”.

Recently, we began airing a naruhodo segment on KIKU-TV. It features our host, JP Lam, explaining various subjects, including places, people, things, foods or traditions. One recent Naruhodo segment was about aikido. Did you know the very first dojo ever constructed outside of Japan was here in Honolulu in 1961? I’ve often passed this dojo on Waialae Avenue in Kaimuki, just down the street from McDonalds, but never knew this bit of history. Ahhh, naruhodo.

If there is something you want to know about, send us an email, and we’ll have JP check it out! Then you can say “Ahhhh, naruhodo” too!

Ja, ne.
