Description On the windward side of Oahu, in a picturesque valley backed by steep mountains, one finds a replica of a Japanese Buddhist temple, a lake with swans. Visitors are filled with a sense of how completely Hawaii brings the cultures of the Orient and those of North America together in a place where ancient voyagers across the Pacific established island paradise living, away from the rest of civilization's relentless growth.A sense of reverence and peace pervades every corner of this sanctuary. Amidst lush tropical plants, tradewinds bring frequent light rain showers to this place where for so many years, persons of all faiths have had a chance to relax and reflect on how lucky they are to be alive.
