Kokaua Town in Cannonball

Kokaua Town is a fictional Hawaiian town on the island of Kauaʻi. It is the main setting of the Lilo & Stitch franchise prior to the Stitch! anime and Stitch & Ai. It serves as the hometown of the main human characters of the franchise, including Lilo and Nani, and becomes the adoptive hometown of Jumba, Pleakley, Stitch, and most of the experiments. (Some experiments, such as Mr. Stenchy and Spats, were given to those who do not live on the island, while others, such as Sparky, live on other parts of the island.) The town, which was not named until Lilo & Stitch: The Series, is based off of the real life census-designated place of Hanapepe located along the southern shore of the actual island.[1]
