The Japanese occupation of Hawaii (Hawaiian: Aupuni Kaua Iapani o Hawai'i) began on 25 December 1941 when the Governor of Hawaii, Joseph Poindexter, surrendered the Cygnian Crown Colony of Hawaii to the Empire of Japan. The Cygnians capitulated after 18 days of fierce fighting in the Battle of Hawaii between the Cygnian garrison and an overwhelming Japanese force. The occupation went on for four years and eight months, and ended upon the surrender of Japan in 1946.
