Ray Tsuchiyama's family arrived on Maui in the early 1900s, and his late father attended Maui High with many illustrious Maui old timers. His Maui family members were elementary school teachers, plantation manager cook, stevedores, World War II Army veterans, nurses, hotel workers, and gas-station entrepreneurs.
His blogs re-interpret Hawai'i history through a current perspective, plus reviews of Hawaiian music, food, architecture, and even the lives of geckos.
He was born in northern Japan, and has traveled throughout China, Southeast Asia, India, Africa, Latin America, and Europe; the most profound influence on his life was growing up in Kalihi-Palama near downtown Honolulu.
"Pacific Memories and Visions" was presented an 2013 Excellence in Journalism Contest award by the Hawaii Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
