Lonely Planet review

On the mauka (inland) side of Mamalahoa Hwy, this Buddhist temple is housed in a quirky red-and-white Hawaiian farmhouse with two altars, large drums and other spiritual gear. Anyone is welcome to join the Zen meditation sessions (6am Wed) and taiko (Japanese drum) practice (6:30pm Tue, 6pm Sat).

Travelers with kids will want to return north a mile to enjoy shady Higashihara Park . Its unique Hawaii-themed wooden play structure is endlessly climbable. It is on the makai (seaward) side, between mile marker 114 and 115.
