Papaikou, Big Island, Hawaii

On the road from Hilo to Akaka Falls is a small little village known as Papaikou. This is a census-designated place in Hawaii. During the 2000 census, it had a population of 1,414. It is also an area that experiences alot of earthquakes. It consissts of 2 square miles of which 1.5 square miles is land and the rest is water. The population is over 54% Asian and Pacific Islander. Most of the shops in the area are run-down or shut-down. Still a interesting breeze-through enroute to the tourist attractions along the route. There is alot of sugar cane farming in the area.
