The first Hongwanji Temple in Kona was established in 1897. Reverend Gyoshin Sato later moved to Hawaii in September to begin servicing the congregation. In 1900, the first Fujinkai group in Kona was established. In 1901, 3 acres of land was purchased in Kealakekua to build a new temple. It was completed and dedicated in 1907.
