We visited the big Buddha and the buildings surrounding it. It was the exact replica of the Buddha that we visited in Japan. The setting is tranquil and offers a place for people to pray.

We came to the Jodo Mission because of geocaching, but have returned on more recent trips because of the calming nature of this venue. A really neat place to visit and learn a little bit more about this culture.

It was most unexpected for a group of 6 Buddhists to find a pagoda on Maui. The buildings are Japanese as is the adjoining graveyard. Altogether beautiful and in a beautiful setting and the beach just 20 metres down the road.

This is one of the stops on the Historical tour of Maui. It is a hidden gem. The cook house is set up as a theater and Edison films that have been rescued from the National Archives are presented . Superb. and affordable.

My son and I stopped by and checked this out in the morning. No one was there! It was so peaceful! Not much more than a 15 minute spot to visit. But took some nice pics and went on our way.

We didn't know of this place until I was looking up places to see on Trip Advisor! Beautiful and peaceful setting with some great picture taking opportunities.
