Byodo-In Temple was built to honor the centenary of the first Japanese immigrants to settle in Hawaii.  The temple was dedicated in August 1968 and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018.

 

Byodo-In Temple is part of Hawaii’s Valley of the Temples Memorial Park and is a smaller scale concrete version of the wooden Byodo-in Temple in Uji, Japan.  The original temple is over 900 years old and was once a Buddhist monastery.  Both temples are beautiful sights to behold, but the Ko’olau Mountains make Hawaii’s replica temple appear even more stunning.   

 

Byodo-In Temple is a place of tranquility and natural wonders.  The grounds include a reflecting pool, lush gardens, meditation sites, and waterfalls.  Koi ponds, wild peacocks, and black swans can also be found on the grounds.  Inside the temple’s main hall is a nine-foot gold-covered statue of the Amida Buddha, carved by famed Japanese artist Masuzo Inui.  This icon is said to be the largest of its kind outside Japan.  On the roof of the temple are two phoenix statues, called Ho-o, that are said to be bringers of good luck.

 

Byodo-In Temple welcomes visitors from around the world with many different religious and spiritual views.  It is a reminder of the way Hawaii welcomed its first Japanese immigrants over 100 years ago.
