Hula Girls

Hula Girls

They danced their way into the hearts of a nation.
  • Those Hawaiians have so much fun!

Set in the mid 1960s as Japan started industrialising in a big way, things were going badly in a coal mining village. The townspeople decided to build Japan's first Hawaiian Village as a tourist trap to save the town. However any decent Hawaiian village needs dancing Hula girls. So they hired a dance instructor from Tokyo, and he soon had the shy Japanese girls coming out of their shells as they learned to do the Hula. Based on a true story, the village became an inspiration to the rest of Japan. In Japanese with English subtitles.
