Carter Lee Churchfield is fascinated with the tantalizing stories of Chinatown’s risqué past.
Her Honolulu Exposed tour takes people around the parts of downtown, especially Hotel Street that were Honolulu’s red light district.
During WWII, it was ground zero scandal, debauchery and corruption on an industrial scale.
Sailors needed to blow off steam and this is where they came to do it.
They came for drinking, for adventure and for girls.
An assortment of brothels sprang up to meet their needs and with them a whole cast of colorful characters and underground subculture took root on the streets.
Churchfield’s Honolulu Exposed tour takes history buffs on walking through time, reviving the people, places and naughtiness of a by-gone era.
