It was installed back in 1968 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of Japanese immigrants in Hawaii.

The grounds and buildings of this mission are open to the public at no charge but donations are accepted and appreciated.

I loved visiting this mission, located on the outskirts of town. It was such a peaceful spot after the hustle and bustle of downtown Lahaina. Right next to the beach, it boasts the largest Buddha outside Japan. There is also a pagoda and bell house. When my partner and I visited, we were the only people there and it was lovely to enjoy the peace and solitude.
