30. for your use its "arigatou" and my reply is

"dou itashimashite" (you are welcome) now you have learned another Japanese word. I wish i knew some south pacific language, and I know very little Hawaiian, my parents will not teach me.. though they encourage me to keep learning Japanese, mostly cause its not about to die off like a native Hawaiian language might, some day. I tried to find out why my family were never shipped to internment camps during WWII. It was mostly because of our Hawaiian blood, ..and some Japanese families were shipped off to the mainland for Internment camps, but those with Hawaiian Native blood never had to. Many were shipped to the main island, for a camp there, but I am not even sure if my family went. My mothers maiden name was "Kāne" which she swears is a Native Hawaiian name.
Its funny, in Japanese, "Kane" means money, so of course the old joke there is my father married my mom, for the Kane (money).

I don't know the other Hawaiian names connected with the family, but I do know that during WWII my granduncle who had been on Hawaii for a few years, had the last name of Yoshida but changed it to his wife's name "Māhoe" so he wouldn't be taken to the mainland. He kept the name and no one bothered him about it.
