“Definitely worth a stop”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

This is on the historic walking tour of Lahaina, although it is away from Front Street and has parking, so you may wish to drive (especially if it is hot out).

The Mission is lovely. Bring your camera and enjoy this very serene space. Don't forget to ring the bell and drop a few dollars in the donations bin. Besides the Buddha and the bell tower, there is a temple and a pagoda.

The sand cemetery across the street is very interesting also. The beach is maybe a hundred yards away in case you want to dip your feet in the ocean to cool down.

“Step into Japan”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This lovely mission was like taking a step into Japan. The tradition bell tower is immense. The temple is filled with intricate carvings all gilted or painted red. The grounds make every picture "perfect." This is a quiet place to go for reflection. They also celebrate the fun and rousing ABON ceremony every fall. Not to be missed!

“Serenity”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

This is a lovely spot to see the ocean and the temple grounds. You can walk to it from downtown Lahaina. It is also fairly close to the Safeway and Long's Drugs. It is hidden behind a residential area but well worth seeking out.

“Hidden surprise”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Surprised to see the largest budda outside Japan just sitting in this little park on the North side of Lahiana. Well worth the time to see it.
