Found the Mission on a side street across from the Cemetery. Was able to walk the grounds, but could not enter the main building. Use peace when you visit, this is still a sacred area. You do not need to attempt to ring the bell...More

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.

This is a beautiful serene place to visit. If you want to escape the crowds for a little while just come here. It is very well maintained and is located right by the beach.

The Lahaina Jodo Mission has a large Buddha and also a place to be quiet and contemplate life. It is a nice break from the sometimes hectic pace of downtown Lahaina.
