Local boy Alton Takiyama-Chung grew up with the stories, superstitions, and the magic of the Hawaiian Islands. He tells stories of the Plantation Days, the Japanese-American experience of WWII, Asian folktales, Hawaiian legends, and of course, ghost stories. He has been a featured teller at the National Storytelling Festivals, and at international storytelling festivals in the Cayman Islands, Singapore, Vietnam, India, and Thailand. He is also a former Chairman of the Board of Directors of National Storytelling Network, the national organization for US storytellers.
Come journey with us with folktales from around the world without leaving the comforts of home. Travel to Korea, where a boy collects stories and stuffs them into a bag; to Africa, where a beautiful necklace becomes the reason for jealousy and deceit; and to Ireland, where a poor piper plays a joke on an unfriendly farmer and his wife. These andother destinations await with your passport to story.
