Lawai International Center is only open to the public for tours on the second and last Sunday of the month. I was very happy that my recent trip to Kauai happened to include the last Sunday in June. When my family and I arrived for the 10 am tour, we were greeted with tea and cookies, which we ate while... 更多
A moving experience as a whole. The only xperience starts with tea and cookies followed by a talk and video describing the history and huge volunteer effort behind the creation and operation of the center. This is followed by a walk up, around and down a winding trail to view each of the 88 small temples, each uniquely adorned.
My friend from Kauai recommended me to come here since his family helps to take care of the land there and his sister got married there as well. We couldn't make it during their normal hours, but we emailed and were able to visit with some others on Thursday which was very nice of them. Our guide was very nice... 更多
There were no public visits to the Lawai Center scheduled while we were in Kauai, so at the prompting of the center's website we emailed to ask after an off-schedule visit. I was excited for our visit, but didn't expect it to be one of the utter highlights of our trip. This won't be for everyone, but any folks seeking... 更多
You are met with tea and cookies. Lynn's presentation of how the efforts of the volunteers is moving. The vibe here is incrediable. Taking the time to visit the yellow cedar pagoda is amazing in how it was built. The 88 shrines are wonderful to peer into and see the gift of trinkets left by the visitors before you. I... 更多
Learned about this amazing place here on TripAdvisor and thought we'd give it a try. On arrival at the airport I see they have a big display at the airport too, so they must be getter better known. It is a very small hillside with 88 shrines tucked in. Visit their website for more detail and instructions on visiting. They... 更多
If you have the opportunity to visit this very, very special place...go, you will be amazed. They have a special blessing every year. They built a temple the same way it would have been build in the 1600's. There are 80 small shrines that you walk along a wooded path to see. A once in a lifetime experience.
I learned about LIC through one of the guides I got at our hotel, and was so disappointed that our trip did not coincide with one of their open days. I emailed them and they arranged a tour just for my husband and I - I was beyond grateful that they were so accommodating! It was an amazing experience. It's... 更多
While visiting the beautiful island of Kaua’i, my fiance and I stumbled upon a very special place, seemingly hidden from the rest of the world. It is called the Lawai International Center, and it is easily missed, as it sits tucked away between the resort heavy town of Poipu and the less than popular, but amazingly quaint, small town of... 更多
