SHPD Historic Site Number

The Matayoshi Hospital consists of four separate buildings. Three of the buildings were constructed in the early 1900’s and the fourth in 1936. At present the three original buildings are used as residential buildings and the fourth as office space. The Matayoshi Hospital is significant for its role in the history of the Japanese community in the development of Hawaii. The primary reason for the development of the hospital was the language barrier that the Japanese immigrants encountered as they migrated to Hawaii.
