In 1906, Japanese immigrants from Horoshima founded a soto zen temple just outside of Paia.  Today, this temple represents Maui’s asian heritage.  During memorial services, temple goers string lei’s and lanterns above headstones, in a beautiful expression of the mixing of Hawaiian and Japanese culture.  Maui’s Mantokuji Soto Zen Temple is a great example of the diverse way of life enjoyed in the Hawaiian islands.
