The Byodo-In Temple in Hawaii
Aug. 11, 2018Leave a comment
I’m going to take everyone on a tour at the Byodo-In Temple in Hawaii!
What is the Byodo-In Temple?
The Byodo-In Temple is a Buddhist temple. It is non-denominational. This temple is dedicated to the first Japanese people who immigrated to Hawaii. It is a replica of a Buddhist temple in Japan, but a smaller version of it. FYI, this temple is not a practicing Buddhist temple, and everyone of all faiths are welcomed to the temple! Also, please be quiet and respectful when you’re in this area. It is still a religious place.
It is located in Kaneohe, Hawaii. Address: 47-200 Kahekili Highway Kaneohe, HI 96744
Parking is available. You’ll see it as soon as you drive in. Entrance fee is $5.00 per person (general admission).
This is what you’ll see when you drive there…and arrive…

You can read facts about koi fish here.
There is a gift shop where you can purchase food for koi fish.
The smell was unbearable. lol.
I highly recommend wearing mosquito repellent, or you’ll be eaten alive!
Into the temple we go! Take off your shoes!
Take off your shoes when you’re in the temple. You can put them back on when you’re outside.

The Aloha Stadium Swap Meet in Hawaii
Aug. 10, 2018Leave a comment
Just like every tourist in Hawaii, I had to go grab some souvenirs to bring home. I decided to stop by the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet. The ABC stores in Waikiki are ridiculously more expensive. So, hey, let’s go walk around and shop ’til we drop!!
What is the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet?
A place where you can shop for clothes, accessories, food, gifts, antiques, hand-crafted items, and souvenirs. Lots of stuff! It’s a gigantic flea market.
Where is it located?
In Honolulu, Hawaii. Address: 99-500 Salt Lake Blvd, Honolulu, HI 96818
$1.00 per person
A parking lot is available. It comes along with the $1.00 fee that you paid for at the entrance. The Aloha Stadium Swap Meet Map is shown below. Also, a photo of the parking lot/stadium is provided below too (for extra reference). 🙂
On my way there!
I’m right behind the real Hawaii Five-0! Does anyone watch the show?
At the Aloha Stadium Swap Meet in Hawaii!
Here are the admissions tickets. Admit one. 1 per person.
Weee! Possibly the hottest day in Hawaii for me so far!! 80+ and climbing!! My nose bridge burned just a little bit. Even sunblock couldn’t help. Make sure to protect your skin from the harsh UV rays!!! They are strong here!
What did I buy? A bunch of t-shirts, other clothes, beach towels, Hawaiin Kukui Nut Lei necklaces, food, and much more! I went on a shopping spree.
Hawaii has the cutest license plate in America. Agree?
I can buy banana chips anywhere, but it’ll be better if it was in Hawaii. haha! Get in my belly!
Kona Coffee. Not the real pure one. But still, better than nothing. I actually made a video on How to French Press Coffee with the Macadamia Mocha flavor. Watch it for fun. Enjoy! 😉
Fruit, always. They’re so good and healthy. Mmm!!
Have you been to The Aloha Stadium Swap Meet? How did you like it? I really liked it. It was fun. I just wished it wasn’t so hot out! My skin isn’t used to being in this type of weather after living in the Upper Midwest for so long!
- Hours: Sunday 6:30 am – 3:00 pm, Wednesday and Saturday 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
- The Aloha Stadium Swap Meet is less expensive than ABC shops in Waikiki.
- A lot of the shops are repetitive, but I didn’t really mind.
- Wear sunblock and sunglasses. It’s outdoors, and it’s burning hot.

- Go early. As I said many times, it gets real hot quick!
- Admissions ticket is for both the a entrance fee and parking.
