Koloa Jodo Mission information
Lonely Planet review
Serving the local Japanese community for a century now, this sect of Buddhism practices a form of chanting meditation that originated in northern India. The temple on the left is the original, which dates back to 1910, while the larger temple on the right is currently used for a weekly 30-minute service (anyone is welcome). For a guided tour call or knock on the office door in back of the larger temple.
