The Byodo-In Temple in Ohau, Hawaii is a smaller scale replica of a 950-year-old temple located in Uji, Japan. It was originally built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants to settle in Hawaii. The temple itself is stunning, and the grounds are incredible and definitely worth a trip if you’re visiting Oahu!

Byodo-In Temple is located at the foot of the Ko’olau Mountains in the Valley of the Temples. It could not be located in a more beautiful place. There are multiple short trails around the Temple where you can soak in the beauty and tranquility of the temple grounds.

Additional Highlights

The grounds around the temple are littered with beautiful plants, Japanese Koi and even a few black swans and peacocks frequent the area. We saw two black swans and a few turtles when we went.

There’s also a small gift shop on the far end of the Temple where you can purchase souvenirs and other trinkets.

Don’t forget to take a few minutes to wander around the grounds. There is a beautiful waterfall up above the Temple and a few other significant buildings and statues to see.
