If you are ever visiting the island of Oahu, you can't pass up the chance to see a touch Japan in Hawaii. Opposite a bustling shopping centre on the Kahekili Highway in Kaneohe, below the Koolau mountains, nestles a little piece of Japan tucked away in Hawaii. The Valley of the Temples Memorial Park contains oriental gardens and koi poinds, a massive nine-foot Buddha statue, Japanese Tea House and an exact replica of Japan’s 900-year-old Byodo-in Temple, the original of which stands in Uji near Kyoto. The temple was recreated to honour the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii.

The Byodo-in Temple is one of the hidden gems of O'ahu which most visitors never see. If you just want to relax and spend some time with some beautiful scenery, this is the place to be.
