Honohina Cemetery was established in the early 1900s to serve the Japanese community in Honohina. This cemetery is not shown on the plantation maps from 1947.
Because Honohina was occupied by mostly sugar workers, the town disappeared with the demise of the sugar industry in that area in the 1970s. A Buddhist temple located on a hill above the cemetery was relocated to the nearby town of Ninole, from where it administers and maintains the cemetery today.
This lovely cemetery, established in the early 1900's, continues to be maintained by members of the Honohina Buddhist Temple.
