Deep in a lush valley along the 2,000-foot Koolau Range lies the Valley of the Temples. The resting place for many of Hawaii\u2019s departed, Valley of the Temples\u2019 hilly landscape is scattered with hundreds of freshly placed tropical flowers, like torch ginger and bird of paradise, to remember loved ones. The main attraction in the Valley of the Temples is a Japanese temple called Byodo-in, which translates to the \u201cTemple of Equality.\u201d A scale replica of a temple in Uji Japan and made entirely without nails, Byodo-in was dedicated in 1968 as a centennial commemoration of the first Japanese immigrants in Hawaii. Famed Kyoto Landscaper Kiichi Toemon Sano planned the Japanese garden complex that houses Byodo-in with extreme attention to detail, from the gravel\u2019s ripple-like design to the small bridges over the fishpond. The deep drone of the sacred bell (bon-sho) fills the tranquil temple grounds, as it is customary for visitors to ring the bell before entering the temple for happiness and longevity. The Valley of the Temples is truly a hidden gem in Hawaii found off the beaten path on the Windward Coast. To reserve The Byodo-In Temple limousine tour, complete the reservation form below.
