From Fukushima to the entire countries

A member of the Spa Resort Hawaiians hula dance team, SAITO Haruka was affected by the disaster in Okuma town in Fukushima prefecture while an elementary school student. She was forced to live as a refugee in Aizuwakamatsu city and Iwaki city. “With help from many people with things like a school bag and stationery, I was able to return to a normal life,” she says with gratitude.
Seeing the movie Hula Girls while in high school set her on a path to becoming a hula dancer. She now fills her everyday life with two shows a day, lessons, and training for junior dancers. She treasures the idea of instilling customers with smiles, courage, and dreams through dance, as the dancers before her have done. Haruka continues to train hard every day, saying, “I want to refine not only my dance but also my human quality as a full-fledged hula dancer.”
