“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

This is a good spot to take a few photos. It is also right next to a beach if you want to get off the road for a little while.

“Nice place to visit”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Such a beautiful church. The budha is very large and made a great backdrop for photos. I esp was interested in the cemetery across the road. It is a little sandy piece of land with old looking grave sites. All in all a nice place to visit.

“Largest Buddha Outside of Japan”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Hidden right by the Mala Ramp area in busy Lahaina is the tranquil and quiet Lahaina Jodo Mission with the largest Buddha statue outside of Japan. You won't need hours here but just to spend 20-30 minutes is a treat. The temple itself is not open to the public but you are more than welcome to take pictures of it, the Buddha statue, and the pagoda. It is free but donations are welcome by the Buddha statue.

“Tranquil and Beautiful”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

The Lahaina Jodo Mission is a great place to visit late in the afternoon just before sunset. The rays from the setting sun highlight the features of the Buddha. It is a quiet place to sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Once you have finished exploring the grounds it is a short walk to the beach at Puʻunoa point to watch the sunset.

“Interesting”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Even if the subject doesn't particularly interest you it is part of the history of the island. Part of our self-guided walking tour that you sort of have to seek out. Not really marked on the main streets, look it up. It doesn't take long to visit, read up on the history of it and it will be more interesting to you. Across from an interesting cemetery too. Very beautiful for what it is and quiet/peaceful.
