    Hello, would it be possible for me and my wife to have a tour of the temple before Jan. 20? We are flexible everyday, except Jan. 14,
    and anytime.

    HI Colleen-san,
    Thank you for asking about lanterns order. I haven't started sending forms yet but will do in the near future. Your lanterns are reserved! Aloha,

    Good afternoon Rev. Ishikawa,
    I would like to purchase 2 Toro Lanterns if they are still available. Can you please forward me information?
    Thank you,

    Sorry for my belated reply. Do you know some more students who want to learn Japanese? If there are more than 10 students, I would be happy to restart teaching Japanese.

    Do you teach Beginning Japanese for children? Any music teaching? My children are very interested in doing either of these things.
