Located on the Windward side of Oahu, the cemetery is nestled in a cleft of the pali and home to wild peacocks and hundreds of Japanese koi carp swim in our waters. The property is surrounded by a natural amphitheater of mountains which overlook the ocean.

The cemetery's gardens honor many faiths including Christianity and Buddhism. A replica of Japan's 950-year-old Byodo-In stands in the Temple of Equality. The original, made of wood, stands in Uji, on the outskirts of Kyoto; the Hawaiian version, made of concrete, was erected in 1968 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii.

Gorgeous place. Don't need long to see it. Plenty of parking. Cats wander around everywhere which is nice. Fish in the ponds too. Gift shop is expensive

This well-manicured memorial park is breathtaking! It’s worth the extra time and energy to drive around and take in the different views/perspectives of the various memorials. The Buddhist temple in the back is beautiful! Get out of the car, walk around the grounds, meditate, ring the bell, feed the koi fish and birds and watch the graceful black swan mesmerize guests. Truly. You won’t regret it; it’s good for the soul.
A hidden gem in a beautiful area tucked underneath the mountains. My jaws dropped when I first saw the temple. Lots of koo fish..and bird feeding oppurutnities! Worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. Picture worthy! Beautiful area and landscaping!
