Makiki Christian Church, Honolulu

A  L  O  H  A !     from Honolulu
 Is this a 
Samurai Castle 
in Japan?








 No! 
It is Makiki Christian Church
 right here in Honolulu!











" Inspired by the early Edo period 
(late sixteenth–early seventeenth century) 
Himeji Castle in Japan, 
this church is the only 
Christian church in the United States 
to be modeled after a 
sixteenth-century Japanese castle. "












A Vital Thriving Part of Our Honolulu
and one of my personal
favorite buildings on  
our islands.

Thank You
for Visiting!
                    Warmly, cloudia

When I looked at the first photograph I immediately thought of Himeji Castle which I visited a few years back while in Japan. Thanks for sharing this unique church building.
