Religious places in North America
The Byodo-In is a smaller-scale replica of the original Byodo-In Temple in Kyoto and is built entirely without nails. It was constructed in 1968 to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of Hawaii's first Japanese immigrants. It's a non-practicing temple with a gorgeous setting at the foot of the Koolau mountains. The garden ponds swarm with with large schools of koi, some nearly one hundred years old.
