This is a very beautiful space. Its so peaceful and certainly made me reflective about life. I had always wanted to visit here and am glad I did. We took the Waikiki shuttle there (Red, I think)

The cemetery is well laid out and we had no problem finding the grave of interest. Also, grounds staff made suggestions that we followed up with the office.
