James Kodama grew up in Kailua, Oahu. His dream was to own a business one day that would be a fun gathering place for friends and ohana (family). A business that would spread the “Aloha spirit”, a feeling that is so unique to Hawaii. In 1979, Island Snow was born. Its unusual offering combined authentic Hawaiian shave ice with a premium locally made clothing line. Through these quality products, Island Snow embraces it’s Hawaiian roots and perpetuates Kodama’s dream to share the Aloha with you and your ohana.
