Great place to visit on the way to the North Shore. This place is very special and great for a family visit. Allow about an hour to have a good look around.

When we came to visit Byod-in Temple, we thought it was just a replica of a Japanese Temple of some sort... which it is. But it is also a working Buddist Temple. Very Cool. It's very quiet, except for the black goose and some frogs,...More

This is one of my most favorite places. I can come here and sit in the gardens for hours meditating and breathing in the fresh air. The temple is beautiful and it is fun to also feed the coi fish.

We strolled the grounds of this beautiful temple, rang the gong, enjoyed the koi and swans and lowered our blood pressure for sure! You drive through a cemetery, which includes a pet section. The backdrop of mountains makes this a special place.

You can ride the motorcycle there. There will be a parking lot and you can park it there and then walk to the temple.
