Well worth a visit! A great place to take pictures and doesn't take up most of your day to see. We loved the beautiful surroundings.

The highlight of the Valley of Temples, this is a beautiful place to stop and absorb some beauty and culture. Cross over the bridge and ring the enormous gong as you enter. Light some incense, pay homage to Buddha and then feed the enormous koi....More

....but not a must see. If you are nearby, it's worth a visit, though for $13 for our family of three, it seemed a bit steep. The grounds are pretty and my son had fun ringing the bell but the cemetery in front of it...More

Enjoyed ringing the gong. But I thought the gardens would have been a little nicer. The Temple was beautiful and Buddha was empressive.

This is a lovely replica of a Japanese temple. We spent about 1.5 hours here. The path leads you past the large gong, to a meditation spot and then into the temple. There is a nice gift shop at the end too. The location nestled...More

This rendition of this Japanese temple is such a peaceful place to stop and enjoy. It wasn't too busy and most everyone respected the signs asking for quiet voices. Spent an hour or so just enjoying the tranquility of the surrounding paths.

This was a beautiful temple of quiet reflection. Even my teens could appreciate it. The koi fish are absolutely beautiful and I was so happy to see turtles. The little market place was awesome and we purchased beautiful photographs of different places in Hawaii.

hi, I don't recollect a sign regarding pets but it is not a public place. It is privately owned and operated. This is a solemn, religious area, so I would presume no.

I think around 10:00 would be best time to go there. Visiting there from Waikiki area must need to use high way, such as H1. In my experience, until 9:00am has heavy traffic jam, so leaving around 9:30 to go to the place... More
