    Such a serene spot. I could go here in a nice quiet day and just relax. A lot of tourist today but it was still peaceful.

    Nice enchanted walk, buy fish food at their gift shop and be prepared to be followed! Kids (2&3 yr old) enjoyed this so much. Remove shoes before heading inside the temple and light an incense.

    Well worth the $3. Even if you've been before, the light here always changes the character of the grounds and a repeat visit is never a waste of time.

    Hidden in the Valley of the Temples, this is a replica from Japan. This is a great place to just hang out and relax, maybe eat your packed lunch before heading back out to the beaches.

    This temple is a replica of a 900-year-old Buddhist place of worship at Uji in Kyoto prefecture of Japan.

    One of the most beautiful places we've ever visited! Take some quiet time to absorb the beauty and tranquility around you....and don't forget to ring the bell. :-)

    Make a donation in the store and at the statue after feeding the koi and birds.

    A hidden gem, but a beautiful place to visit and to reflect.

    Parts of Magnum P.I. was shot here. No professional photography is allowed. Wtf?

    The temple is located behind the cemetaries, in the Valley of the Temples. There may be some mosquitoes here.

    I agree with everyone else, spend $1 to feed the fish and birds, it's a lot of fun. The birds will eat right from your hand if you let them.

    Matt Johnson · December 15, 2010
  • Al M.

    I agree with the others on the $1 bag of bird/fish food. Feeding the doves out of your hand is a lot of fun! The bag of food is generous and will last a while

    Ring the huge bell on the left while pondering the meaning of life.

    Ralph L · November 24, 2010
  • Trent B.

    Feeding the koi is standard stuff, but having the birds land on your wrist and eat out of your hand is FUN!

    Trent Bellew · November 19, 2010
  • Mary M.

    Just $1.00 for a big bag of fish and bird food. Guaranteed fun and excitement when the fish jump for their food.

    Mary Mac · September 25, 2010

    Feed the koi... they'll practically jump out of the water for it!

    Lugar alucinante, um pouco longe de North Shore, mas vale a pena.
