Japanology Plus explores Japanese life and culture. In this five-minute digest, we look at aloha shirts, popular symbols of Hawaii, worn by tourists and locals alike. A glance back at their history reveals a Japanese connection -- they were often made by people of Japanese descent, using materials and sometimes techniques from kimono making.
