5 Cents for Ice Cream at the Fujii Service Station 

... My Ojiichan owned the Aloha Barbershop in Hanapepe right next to the movie theater up until I was about three. I still have faint memories of visiting him to ask him for 5 cents so I could buy an ice cream cone from the service station down the street. The ice cream of course was absolutely special. In my memory at least, puts Matsumoto's Shaved Ice to shame! The Obachan (everyone was an Obachan to me when I was growing up) who ran the service station would make a very special cone for me - ice cream base covered with sweet azuki beans and strawberry shaved ice heaped on the top.
