A Barefoot Boy From Hilo
Starts to Make It Big by Selling Flowers
(Part of the Mas Hongo Interview Series)
This transcription of interviews done with Masanori Hongo is a continuation of the article we did in February 2022.
Because it’s spring time, we decided to skip ahead to after World War II, to when Mas got into the flower growing and selling business. Upon coming back from his military service and finishing college, Mas and his family had a successful flower growing operation in Hawaii which would eventually lead him to flower sales on the mainland, and then becoming the manager of the California Flower Market in San Francisco (the CA Flower Market was a significant Japanese American owned business that will be covered in a future segment of the Mas Hongo Interview Series).
