As a self-described "Jewish kid from Hollywood," Glen Grant became one of Hawaii's most beloved teachers and Hawaiian historians. He popularized the term "Chicken Skin" and left a legacy of ghost stories that still scare and intrigue us to this day. With the help and support of Glen's family, join Lopaka Kapanui, as he shares stories from the darkest recesses of Glen's spine-chilling collection.
In addition to bringing guests on some of the scariest Ghost Tours on the island, Lopaka's talents include Storytelling Events, Lectures, Daytime Historical Tours and Private Tours. Custom Tours are also available!
Hawai'i, and 'O'ahu especially, is a fusion of different cultures with customs rooted in the values and traditions of their native lands combined with that of the Native Hawaiian people and the land on which they live. Such a remarkable mix of people in this island environment has created an abundance of unique stories from all walks of life.
Before becoming a world-class destination, before ghost tours, before outside visitors... the islands of Hawai‘i were steeped in oral traditions of shape shifting beings in the upland forests or waterfalls which were inhabited by a translucent force that dragged young men into their dark depths in order to suck the spiritual life out of them. Even King Kamehameha found it necessary to appease the very gods themselves in order to secure victory in his campaign to bring the Hawaiian archipelago under one rule.
Hawaiian deities and spirits aren’t the only things residing in this island paradise. Here is also where the Japanese dog demons, the inu-gami, are sent to ruin the lives of unsuspecting families. Here is where the Filipino vampire-like creature, the aswang, roams in search of her next victim. And here is where the Portuguese witch, the feiteceira, spins her spells and curses at her whim. Rich in culture and traditions, these islands are overflowing with stories of ghosts and hauntings, creatures and curses.
Beyond the cool, blue waters and balmy trade winds of our idealistic paradise is the thin veil which separates our world from the place where shadows talk back. Spirits, Ghosts, Legends, Facts... Experience the Hawaii most don't see everyday.
Myths of Hawaii and its gods and goddesses, legends of ghosts, spirits and demigods, stories of mystery and hauntings... let Lopaka show you a glimpse of his world, where the paranormal becomes the norm.

We believe it is our duty, as humans, to come to the aid of those in distress. Giving brings us closer to creating the world that we want to live in, a world we can leave to our children. There is a suggestion - and a confirmation by those who give often - that giving to others is directly correlated with an increased sense of happiness. Join us. Support a Cause.
Please note that all of our ghost tours and visits to these sacred and beloved sites are done with the utmost respect. At Mysteries of Hawai'i, we do not employ "scare tactics." There is no one hiding in the bushes to frighten you, we don't pretend to see things that are not there, we do not "create hype" where there is none. Everything that happens (or does not happen) depends entirely on you, who have chosen to experience the Mysteries of Hawai'i.
