"Ahuimanu Byodo-in" Ahuimanu by GuthrieColin

Ahuimanu Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 19 photos

The Byodo-in, also known as the Phoenix Hall (鳳凰堂 hōō-dō) is one of the most relaxing places to visit on Oahu. Its Japanese Architecture and scenic setting make it a highly unique location. Bring your camera and leave your stress behind.
The building is a replica of a Buddhist temple built in 998 CE in Japan. The Hawaiian version was built in 1968 and was recreated to remember the early Japanese settlers on the island.
