  • Travelled to the east side of the island today via the the pali highway. Spent an hour here just relaxing and walking around. Take the time to ring the bell for good luck. Well worth the time to visit...  more »
  • My wife wanted to check out a temple during our stay in Waikiki. We took the bus to Kaneohe. It was raining all day long. The trip took about 75 minutes. I thought I was going to see a full size, Budd...  more »

  • This is truly a beautiful and peaceful place. We come here every time we visit Oahu. This place is magical and it allows you to interact with nature. Appropriate for all ages. Entrance is less than $5 per person for the Byodo-In Temple (which is the most visited area). Be mindful and respectful when you visit the temple. Also, bring some change to buy food to feed the fish and the birds. A good place to bring your kids. Google The Byodo-In Temple if you want to see more amazing pictures of the place.
  • Driving up to each temple and burial is amazing to view and so fascinating. The actual temple is gorgeous, amazing to walk around and see the large large large Buddha. Great to spend the afternoon and walk around.
  • The temples and the grounds themselves are beautiful and serene. I loved the walking path and koi pond that begins at the other end of the temple. But besides that, the people who work in the cemetery are awesome. This past summer my father had a medical emergency at the wheel and we crashed on cemetery grounds. I have never seen so many employees show up out of nowhere so quickly. They soothed us, called the ambulance, took care of my father, and fixed the wheel on our car all at the same time while an off duty fire fighter also treated my father. True Aloha. I couldn't be any more grateful to these people. And if they see this, he is doing well and has completely recovered. Thank you, mahalo.
  • He valley of temples is just a cemetery. There are items within the cemetery that are nice to visit such as the Chinese temple at the end. There are various items to see but we were not well educated on the features of the area. Make sure you go prepared or it is just a cemetery and you won't get much out of it, so your mileage may vary.
  • They keep the grounds well maintained. Nice option to now get flowers right at the site. A tranquil place to remember family who are buried here. Tourists will want to visit the Buddhist temple in the back. In recent years they've added an additional back section. This is not a sightseeing destination but once you are here you realize its very picturesque.
