Even though this is a replica it is very well done. We enjoyed a couple of peaceful hours here. It was a very good place to visit and reflect.

We went here as part of our photography tour around Oahu. It was a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. The grounds were lovely and well kept. A moment of reverence within the temple itself.

I just love to visit this peaceful and picturesque Buddhist temple with such a gorgeous backdrop of the Ko’olau mountains. Ring the gong and send compassionate wishes to all. A great reminder to stop and smell the plumeria! Mahalo and aloha!

If you’re travelling on the East coast of Oahu, I’d highly recommend taking a short stop at the Byodo-In Temple. It’s at the back of a cemetery so you need to be respectful driving in. $5 entrance per person. Take as much or as little...More

You could eat at the Ranch, but I'd say travel down the road a half mile from the temple and go to Mike's Huli Chicken. It's probably some of the best food on the eastern side of the island.

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.
