Javier Fombellida is the keeper of a hidden treasure at the old Blaisdell Hotel on Fort Street.  He operates the last manually operated elevator in Hawaii.  The elevator goes up and down, like elevators do, but it also takes its occupants back in time.  Built in 1912, the elevator has been servicing the same four floors for nearly a century.
