A wonderful place to visit that encompasses history, education, and the peacefulness of the islands. A multi-faith area as well as a working cemetery, the Valley of Temples offers those who visit a chance to experience true peace. From the gentle sounds of waterfalls and...More

Went to visit some family graves and then took a walk over to the Temple which is always and enjoyable experience. Lots of gold fish as usual.

The temple is tucked in the back of Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. The grounds are well kept and beautiful. Well worth a stop by. It is all wheelchair accessible. The Koi ponds are second to none. The temple is beautiful. If you take...More

This is a beautiful place - the drive up to it, the drive around it, the drive through it - all great. It's well maintained, quiet and simply a terrific place to visit. The Byodo-in Temple seems like the big draw, it's apparently a working...More

I loved this place. With the swans and turtles, meditation areas, beautiful landscaping with water features it was so peaceful and relaxing. I could easily spend hours here. The flowers were beautiful.

The overall area is quite fascinating, being able to observe the various cultures and their burial traditions. The Buddhist temple seems a bid odd to be honest, what appears to have either been developed as, or turned into a tourist attraction, in such a spiritual...More

This replica temple set in a beautiful location, below the cliffs and surrounded by ponds, is very pretty and pleasant. However, perhaps because it isn't a real functioning temple, it lacks something the real temples have, a sort of hushed reverent peace.

You can ride the motorcycle there. There will be a parking lot and you can park it there and then walk to the temple.
