Designed to focus on peace between all peoples, Japanese Peace Pagoda sits atop a hill overlooking a beach, with views stretching down into the city. Take a stroll up the hill, or take a rickshaw all the way to the top. Before you enter the temple, remember to cover up your shoulders and knees and remove your shoes. Once inside, take a moment to appreciate the message sent by the Buddhist monks who built the pagoda, and snap photos of the various Buddha statues.
