Alton Chung

Japanese-Korean storyteller Alton Takiyama-Chung grew up with the stories, superstitions, and the magic of the Hawaiian Islands. This gives him a unique perspective when telling stories of Hawaii, of WWII Japanese-Americans, and Asian folktales.

His finely spun stories, rooted in a very unique culture and a one of a kind perspective, are delivered with a deep sense of reverence and authenticity. He has performed across the U.S. and abroad, including international storytelling festivals in the Cayman Islands, Singapore, Vietnam, and Thailand.  He is a former Chairman of the Board of Directors for the National Storytelling Network. 

“Chung was captivating with his facial expressions and acting skills, as he switched alter-egos…no one missed a word.”  – Honolulu Weekly
