Byodo-in Temple is a replica of the Japanese temple in Uji Japan that is located in Oahu Hawaii. This temple have been considered as one of the hidden gems in Hawaii. A lot of tourist have put this in their itinerary simply because of it's captivating landscape, architecture and gorgeous nature backdrop of Koolau Mountain.

 

Just walking to the temple will already take your breath away, this place is just peaceful and away from everything. Perfect for a relaxing moment where you can just sit and admire the beauty of both man made and nature made sceneries. Seeing this photos from my friends encourage me to finally visit this temple. 

This is one of the nicest temple location I have ever seen yet so far here in Hawaii. 

located in Kaneohe, Hawaii, this temple is indeed and literally is a hidden gem in Hawaii. I've always been in Kaneohe and never did I know that this place can be found here.

I am not a professional photographer but this view doesn't require you to get this beautiful photo. No matter what angle you take this from, near or far it'll surely stand out.

For the price of $5 that I'm sure they use to maintain the place, this place isn't so bad.

They also have a small store beside the temple if you want to get some souvenirs to bring with you. 

Or play with their Large Koi fish all over the Lagoon and  beautiful black swan. This fishes are gigantic and freely swims in the lagoon just right in front of the temple that totally matches with it. You can feed these fishes if you want to and they also sell feeds in the store.

Offer a prayer to the buddha and lit some incense. Just don't forget to take your shoes off bef0re stepping foot into the temple. This is exciting for me because although I have visited temples before like in Taiwan, Singapore and Malaysia, I have never tried lighting an incense. With not too many people around too, I get to peacefully enjoy the place.

...or ring the temple's bell. 

I often see it in Japanese shows that ringing the bell is part of their prayers so that 
God can hear it. I get the bell tower to myself so here I am trying to ring it as loud as I can.

Hope you enjoy reading and seeing a glimpse of this temple, If you have questions just contact me and I will get in touch with you.
