Thanks for the comment. Did you take the time too rate my photos ?

A very special place, maybe add more of my pics of temple grounds later.

My parents house is just behind the first row of tall trees in back of the Temple, so I had only a 3 minute walk to get there, and did not have to pay the entry fee.


Did you know the original temple is 900 years old, located at Uji, Japan. Considered by many to be the most beautiful in all of Kyoto and is a national treasure by the Government of Japan.

It took nearly 3 years and $2.6 million dollars to build and completed the Temple in Hawaii . Nowhere else in the world outside of Japan, is there a Japanese memorial gardens and temple so truly devoted to the Japanese people and their belief then that at the Valley of the Temples Memorial Park in Hawaii. The Temple and grounds cover a total of 7 acres, there is a golden Buddha that is unique in all the world. Towering 18 feet, the immense figure is an original work of art, not a replica, carved by a famous Japanese sculptor Masuzo Inui, from Kyoto.

The Buddha at the original " Byodo-in-Temple " in Japan was carved nearly a Thousand years ago. Byodo-in means " the Temple of Equality "
My Japanese step mother works at the small Gift shop on the Temple grounds, where Japanese things are sold. Thanks*

I love your pictures of the temple. When we went there, my camera battery died just after we arrived, so no pictures at all. But yours capture what I would have if I could have. They are just perfect. It looks like you had the same weather we did and everything!
