This is a beautiful place to visit if you are in Oahu. My children enjoyed too. I would definitely recommend it. Also don't forget to bring bug spray.

An enjoyable and spirtual hour or so. Not as many fish as before, but still fun. Make sure you ring the bell

Give yourself some time to relax at this jewel of architecture and to absorb the zen vibe of the place as it presents a beautiful face under misty peaks. Our tour bus did not leave us enough time to soak in the relaxing environment of the scene. Perhaps if you rent a car and eat a sack lunch there, then... More

very nice temple and garden. Peaceful setting to pray, meditate or just quietly and respectfully stroll. We enjoyed it very much. Go early to beat the crowds.

This spot is a great quick stop. It only takes 30-45 minutes to see the whole thing. It has some great photo ops and if you buy fish food try to feed the doves first. Put a bunch in your hand and hold it out a ways above the ground. They will fly up and jump on your hand and... More

The price is 3.00 per person. If you had never seen a temple before this could be good. Very crowded though. Being able to ring the bell is fun.

Just a short stop required, but very beautiful. Take 30 minutes and stop here. The temple itself is beautiful. Down side is the fact that this is a very small site so you don't need much time here.

I've been to the original Byodo-in in Uji, Japan but this one is a lot cooler with the green mountains in the background. It's like a brief transport to Japan during the visit. The walk through the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park is a great walk with the picturesque surroundings.

In the rain forest area of Oahu this is a world away from the bustle of Honolulu. Peaceful location and a stunning building, I could have taken up residence quite happily. A bit more commercial than it once was it is still well worth a visit. Not on any bus route you will need a car or take a tour,... More
