Actively involved in the Democratic Party during the post-World War II years, Takabuki was among a generation of Americans of Japanese Ancestry to rise to political office in the 1950s. A confidant of Governor John Burns, a member of the Board of Supervisors of the City and County of Honolulu, a business associate of developer and financier Chinn Ho, a trustee of the Bishop Estate - Takabuki has been at the heart of many of the sweeping social, financial, and political changes that have fundamentally altered Hawai'i in the last half century."@en ;
