We stopped at this place on a Circle Island Tour. It felt a bit spiritual. Really glad we stopped there. The scenery was beautiful.

It’s a replica of the historic Byodo-In Temple in Kyoto Japan and was used in some movies and tv shows, as well as wedding ceremonies. The ponds is full of Koi fish sorrounded by garden and trees. The Ko’olau mountain cliffs added the attraction
