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. "

Trade Wind Happy

A  L  O  H  A !
 When the Trade Winds blow,
 it makes everyone feel young
like this fellow enjoying 
a ride in the back 
of an open vehicle

How wonderful to work 
high on a roof with the
 Ko`olau Mountains watching

Surf is up too!

" If you can spend 
a perfectly useless afternoon 
in a perfectly useless manner, 
you have learned how to live. "
                                       Lin Yutang


Blow away Volcanic haze!
Come freshening North East Winds
bring the scent of far off cold
and open ocean-

Clear the skies
and open our hearts
to Delight!

Bright Sun
Glinting waves
Fresh visitors.

Thank YOU
for visiting today!
Hope YOU are feeling it too-
                    Warmly, cloudia
