Oahu has diverse cultures that have blended and transformed the island’s traditions, festivals and foods. As agriculture boomed in the late 19th century, workers from China, Japan, Russia, Korea, Puerto Rico, Portugal and the Philippines were brought to the islands to work and live on plantations. Today, the City and County of Honolulu is fortunate to be a melting pot of different cultures, enhancing our living experience for those who reside here and to those who are visiting. We currently have a population of 998,714.
