Very serene place

This is a beautiful serene place to visit. If you want to escape the crowds for a little while just come here. It is very well maintained and is located right by the beach.

This is a beautiful place. Just off the beach and there is a cemetery next to it. Very peaceful place to visit.

The Lahaina Jodo Mission has a large Buddha and also a place to be quiet and contemplate life. It is a nice break from the sometimes hectic pace of downtown Lahaina.

We stopped at sunset, and enjoyed the serenity of the Mission. When one faces the Buddha, the majesty of the mountains stand behind. When one views the beautiful pagoda, the ocean also adds its presence. It's a short time commitment (though one can enjoy the ambiance as long as one chooses), but it's a gentle reminder of the melding of... More

Something different from the beach and the sun. You can actually combine the two because just by the site there is a beach popular with the locals. A Japanese temple, a giant Buddha and pleasant surroundings.

Going to the Lahaina Jodo Mission is a short trip, just a quick walk around the grounds for a moment really, to look at the large buddha and the several pagodas adjacent to Baby Beach, just North of Lahaina (also next to a very, very quirky cemetery). Parking is free, and there isn't any particular information about what you are... More

We heard that the mission was a cool site to see, so on our way to explore the island we stopped in. We weren't allowed to go inside the temples, but it was a very peaceful site and cool to see! It doesn't take more than 10 minutes to see the entire thing, with time left over to sit and... More

Went there on a morning. The area was open but temples were closed. It is nice for a quick walk around and some pictures. The cemetery on the beach on the other side is worth having a look. The beach in the front is also very nice.

This free compound consists of a big open courtyard surrounded by Tokyo-style buildings suitable for Buddhist ceremonies. One building is open for interior views. Right on the water, parking on the street outside.

It is small, and not far from Lahaina Harbor (short drive). There is not a whole lot of time to spend here, but it is amazing to see the Buddha and experience this culture in Maui!
