Byodo-In Temple on Oahu

The Byodo-In Temple on Oahu was constructed at the foot of the Ko’olau Mountains in Oahu in 1968 to mark the 100th anniversary of Japanese immigration to Hawaii. It is a copy of a 1000 year old temple in Japan and was constructed entirely without nails.

  3. Thanks Jill;

    We saw with Oahu Nature Tours which do a North Shore trip. Very inexpensive and a nice half day trip.

    Cheers, Harold
