Honolulu is the capital and the most populous city of the U.S. state of Hawaii. In the Hawaiian language, Honolulu means “sheltered bay” or “place of shelter”. The city has been the capital of the Hawaiian islands since 1845 and gained historical recognition following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor near the city on December 7, 1941, and as the birthplace of Barack Obama, the 44th and current President of the United States.
