Japanese Gardens to see on Oahu, HI

(1/2) > >>

Healeyjet:
Just wondering if anyone can give me some names of the best Japanese Gardens to see on Oahu, HI.  My family is traveling there at the beginning of April and I need to see some Japanese Gardens.
Thanks in advance !

Aloha Healyjet,

While I am not a Japanese gardener, I am on Oahu. (I am a webmaster who helped set up this site.)

I took one of the photos on the home page of this site, http://myjapanesegarden.org/. If you watch the slide show, you will see a photo with my name, Blaine Fergerstrom, on it. That was taken at Byodo In Temple, behind Valley of the Temples cemetery in Kaneohe, Oahu.

You have to enter the cemetery and drive to the back to get to the temple. It is very beautiful. You may be asked for admission or a donation.

There are others on Oahu, but that is one of the nicest.

If I think of others, I will post information for you. I hope you enjoy your stay!

Aloha,

Blaine

Healeyjet:
Thanks Blaine, Valley of the Temples is on my list.  I am sure we will enjoy our stay. After all . It's Hawaii !
Any more ideas and examples are greatly appreciated.

It has been so long since your initial question, perhaps it is time for another visit to Hawaii?!
There is a lovely garden behind the East-West Center on the campus of the University of Hawaii - Manoa. This is reachable by bus and a short walk or by car, though one will have to pay a parking fee for a car.

Hi, K. T.
Got picts?

Hey how's the healing going?  Are you back in boots again? Seriously, let me know if you want me to set up a gallery or such for Hawaii gardens.
Mahalo nui!
