WHO/WHAT: The Consulate General of Japan in Honolulu and Hawaii Pacific University will co-host the Japan Foundation traveling exhibition, “Struggling Cities: from Japanese Urban Projects in the 1960s.”

WHEN/WHERE: Aug. 24 to Sept. 7 at Aloha Tower Market Place. The exhibition space is located across from the Welcome Center of Hawaii Pacific University on the first floor. Exhibition hours are daily from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
COST: Admission is free.
