The site is part of a larger complex which includes an active cemetery!
The temple is symbolic of the 100 years of Japanese immigration to Hawaii when it was opened in 1968. It is nestled among the green peaks of Oahu's Ko'olau Mountains. It is a smaller scale replica of a near-1000 year old temple in Japan bearing the same name.
Although a Buddhist temple, it is non-denominational and guests are welcome to view the grounds or practice their worship.
Flights into Oahu and the airport at HNL are the best way onto the island, allowing guests to enjoy the sights, including the Byodo-In Temple.
Rental cars or chauffeured services can reach the location easily from Honolulu, it is roughly 20km / 13 miles distance from the airport. There is also a public bus service, local time tables should be consulted at the time of your visit.
