The Main-Monastery House is the closest experience to living in a Japanese Monastery, Hawaii style. The private bedrooms adjoin the Meditation Room. A place to sleep deeply, to read, & prepare simple meals. Bathroom shared.
We are an older community of 10 households. There has been very little change during the 25 years Akiko has lived here, except many of our elders "have crossed over." Guests are requested to honor this older village by being quiet, kind and respectful. Akiko's is smoke free alcohol free, and smokers are asked to walk down the street to the waterfall to smoke and alcohol consumed at either Hakalau Park or Kole Kole Beach Park down the street.
