Ala Moana Shopping Center is the largest shopping mall in Hawaii and also the largest open-air shopping center in the world (maybe it's because we have around 80 degree weather ALL year long)!

30 of the Best Things to Do on the Island of Oahu

Honolulu’s massive Shirokiya department store in the Ala Moana Center—the last bastion of a company formerly omnipresent in its native Japan—just got a revamp and a new name: Shirokiya Japan Village Walk. On June 25, the company reopened in the Ewa Wing of the mall and, the “store” feels now more than ever like you’ve stepped out of Hawaii and into Japan. Shirokiya’s new format, which they’re calling a “theme park village,” is styled to look and feel like a monzen-machi Japanese town.
