  • 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 »

  • 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.
  • Been going here since I was 3 and this is a great place to go with family. The fish are really are really fun to feed and the birds are so tamed that you can let them fly in your hand and feed them. Nice calm place where all the deceased people can rest.
  • Obvious tourist trap with a humming gift shop in the center of it. Not much here outside of the REPLICA temple. It's a bit of a shoddy replica if you ask me, you an see the 2x6's and nails they bought from Home Depot in the facade work. As weird as this sounds, the entire staff seemed to be comprised of retired military that had once upon a time been night club bouncers, or vice versa. One poor family was waiting at the purported ticket gate for 15 minutes waiting for someone to "make change for a hundred", before we sauntered up to it and grateful for the perfect opportunity purchased their tickets for them. If you can't make change for $100 for the tickets you are selling, should you really be selling tickets? Won't be on my recommendation or visit list for the future and will steer folks away provided the opportunity.
  • Is easy to get there! And is really good place to pass the time!
  • One of the best spots we visited on Oahu. Beautiful grounds, black swans gifted from Australia, and the temple is a replica of a much larger one in Japan.
