Hawaii has such a diverse environment because of our location and history with agriculture. Because of this diversity many cultures co-exist here. This is a Japanese temple hidden in an area called The Valley of the Temples in Kaneohe on the windward side of the Island of Oahu. It is a working Temple with koi ponds, black swans, a giant bell and a large Buddha. A lovely garden surrounds this beautiful temple which sits majestically in the arms of the gorgeous sculpted mountains and protected by many ancestors.
