“A wise and successful businessman once told me, ‘Michael, make sure you get a good contractor that you can trust and, most of all, a good bank and banker that you can also trust!’ Bank of Hawaii has treated our business very well for 102 years.” —Michael Tokunaga

S. Tokunaga Store, located in Hilo, Hawaii, offers a full range of fishing, diving, hunting, and firearms gear. Opened by Sumie Tokunaga in 1920 as a simple mom-and-pop store, the business has grown for 102 years. It is now run by Michael Tokunaga, the 3rd generation of Tokunagas, who took over the business from his mom, Ethel Tokunaga. Ethel (Sumie’s daughter-in-law) ran the business from 1960 to 1991. The store has become the No. 1 center for deep water and shoreline fishing supplies on Hawaii Island, and also offers everything for hunting, diving or camping adventures. With a knowledgeable staff who have over 75 years of combined experience, they continue to follow Sumie’s original philosophy of service: “Get the customers the products that they want, and provide them at a reasonable price with the best service. Treat them how you would like to be treated, and make them feel comfortable.”
