Lahaina Jodo Mission is a replica of an authentic Japanese Buddhist temple. Visitors can explore the serene landscape, wonder at the towering pagoda and see one of the largest statues of Buddha outside of Asia. The statue was installed in 1968 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of Japanese immigrants to Hawaii.
The mission has special days on its calendar including Buddha Day on the 1st Sunday in April, O-bon service on the first Sunday in July, Higan-e service for the Autumn Equinox on the 3rd Sunday in September, and Joya-e service to ring the temple bell on the last day of the year.
Lahaina Jodo Mission is open to the public.
