LOST: On Location – “Byodo-In Temple”

Here is the first LOST location from our Hawaii Christmas adventure.

The Byodo-In Temple is located on the Winward side of Oahu close to Kane’ohe Bay, where we stayed with my cousin.

Taken from Virtuallosttour.com:

Inside the temple is Amida, at over 18 feet the largest wooden Buddha carved in nearly a thousand years and after carving was covered with cloth, painted with gold lacquer, and finished with gold leaf. The temple also features a three ton brass Peace Bell, and a koi pond.

So the location is used for Sun and Jin’s home, I believe. It is where we see that Jin (a waiter) is in love with Sun (heiress to a huge company thanks to her father). So check out the proof below:

Notice where they are and then see where Emily and I are.


LOST: A Journey

I came about LOST about a year after its premiere. No one really talked about it or watched it. I only remember a classmate in high school telling me when she was in Hawaii she saw Hurley, but no one knew who that was. During its first season, I never watched an episode nor turn the channel to it. It was like it never existed. Then one fateful day the fall of 2005 I downloaded the pilot episode from iTunes. I remember reading the description and thinking, “How bad could this be?” Adventure. A plane crashing. Could there be pirates? How would they get rescued. Sounded like adventure, and quite frankly SURVIVOR was becoming boring and less exciting than its first few seasons. So I gave it a chance….
