The Wailuku Hongwanji Mission was established in 1898 by the Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. Its first minister was Reverend Kunisaki who traveled on horseback to spread the Dharma to the people of Maui. As a result, Kahului Hongwanji formed as a branch of Wailuku Hongwanji through Reverend Kunisaki's efforts.

Wailuku Hongwanji belongs to a larger worldwide organization. The Honzan (The World Headquarters of the Jodo Shinshu denomination) is called the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha as the exact name of denomination, and the 'Hongwanji' as the official name of the main temple which is located at Hanayacho-sagaru Shichijo Horikawa in Kyoto, Japan. This temple is the Jodo Shinshu Hongwanji-ha, commonly referred to as the Nishi Hongwanji. There are four large overseas Missions in the World which are Buddhist Church of Canada, Buddhist Church of America (North America), South America, and Hawaii. In Hawaii, it is called Honpa Hongwanji Mission of Hawaii. There also are temples in Europe, Australia, Mexico, Taiwan and Kenya.
