T and I visited the Byodo-In Temple over the weekend. I absolutely loved it. Even though Hawaii is furthest from the “hustle and bustle” mentality, I felt like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders when we arrived – it was that peaceful. I definitely see myself meditating here.
The temple was built in 1968 as a memorial to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii.
You can feed the koi. They go nuts for fish food. Fun fact – koi fish can live to be 100 years old.
We met a super friendly guy who offered to take our picture. Talked to us for awhile. Thanked T for his service in the military. Gotta love Hawaii!!
