A lot of the houses back here have these fish flags flying - Japanese Koi Carp, celebrating Children's day (May 5th). These fish represent sons in the household, the houses have different numbers and different sizes and colours depending on how many sons they have.

Kapiolani park. This is in downtown Waikiki and is one of the major parks in Honolulu. Overlooked by Diamondhead volcano, this is where the half marathon will start and end.
