"This beautiful Buddhist temple is a replica of the 900-year-old Byodo-In located in Uji, Japan. It is located in one of the most peaceful locations in O'ahu - the Valley of the Temples. The valley is situated against a back-drop of tall cliffs and is landscaped with traditional lush Japanese gardens and koi ponds. Inside the Byodo-In Temple is a nine-foot Lotus Buddha." This description comes from Hawaiiweb.com
This is probably my favorite place on O'ahu, Hawaii. Officially I think it is a "Pure Land" temple but I find it is open to all. The temple room which contains the Lotus Buddha is SO peaceful I could stay there forever.
