This small, simple, and perfectly serene Buddhist temple is not unexpectedly found in Hawaii, considering the rich immigration history of the state. The temple itself is a masterpiece and the grounds are well-manicured. Their is a giant bell that should be rung upon entering, koi is the water and an impressive statue. Visitors should be respectful regardless of their religion and observe the serenity of this place. It is also a great place to just be quiet and reflect.

The drive up to the temple is beautiful. Park in a large parking lot beneath emerald mountains, walk across the bridge, and enjoy the spectacular temple, koi-filled lake, and colorful gardens. It's a replica of a Buddhist temple in Kyoto Japan, constructed without nails to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of Japanese immigrants to Hawaii. You might recognize it since it appeared in "Hawaii 5-0" and "Magnum PI." You'll also see turtles and black swans. Children especially love feeding the koi and birds. Small gift shop. Not far from the highway and a must see.

The temple is located near a Japanese memorial on the windward side of Oahu. There is a koi pond outback where you can feed the birds with seed from the gift shop. The mountains behind the temple provide a stunning backdrop for the peaceful setting.

A beautiful temple located minutes away from windward mall. There is a koi pond in the front of the temple and with mountains as backdrop. It's not a place where you can spend a whole day at but spend at least half an hour to enjoy the tranquil, serene environment.
