Honolulu Buddhist Temple

A  L  O  H  A !

" Shingon Shu Hawaii 
915 Sheridan Street in Honolulu, Hawaii,
 is one of the most elaborate displays 
of Japanese Buddhist temple architecture in Hawaiʻi. 
It was first built in 1917-1918 by Nakagawa Katsutaro, 
a master builder of Japanese-style temples,
 then renovated in 1929 by Hego Fuchino, 
a self-taught man who was the first person 
of Japanese ancestry to become 
a licensed architect in the Islands. "

It's quite ornate. There's one not that far from where I grew up; I should photograph it at some point.
