Born and educated in Japan, Hego Fuchino immigrated to Hawai`i at age 17 or 18 and worked his way through `Iolani School and the University of Hawa`i. He worked as a land surveyer and engineer in Honolulu while he taught himself architecture, and became one of the first Japanese architects in Hawai`i. One of his earliest works was the Kuakini Hospital, which he designed in1919. He designed numerous churches, shrines and temples such as the Izumo Taisha Mission; commercial buildings; movie theaters such as the Haleiwa Theater; residences and apartments; and schools such as the Hawaiian Mission Academy, many of which exist today. His building designs strongly reflect his Japanese heritage.
