Community Buildings--Hakalau Upper Camp
For the resident of Hakalau Upper Camp, there was easy access to shopping, entertainment, exercise facilities, social halls or clubhouses, educational and religious facilities. Technically, Hakalau Upper Camp included everything above Mamalahoa Highway (now known as Old Mamalahoa Highway). However, since the camp map below shows some community buildings directly across from "Up Camp" and considered to be part of "Down Camp", these are also included in the pictures below.

This building housed different functions during different periods, including Hakalau Personnel Office/ILWU Union Hall, Japanese Language School, Aikido Hall (Building # 38) - Built 1927, Demolished late 1984 or 1985. By late 1984, the building was no longer used and was no longer fumigated for termites. Termite damage was so severe the structure was no longer safe. Per Rev. Tamura (1979-1996)
