Cancellation of 2020 Hawaii Jodo Shu Tour to Japan

I regret to inform you that we decided to cancel 2020 Jodo Shu Japan Tour in October due to Covid-19.  As you may assume it, there was no application at all by the end of May but in case you paid application fee to Kinetetsu this month, please let me know as soon as possible.  All the deposit should be returned to you with no penalty fee. 

 

Although interisland flight without 14 days quarantine will resume in June 16, international travel is still uncertain.  In addition, Young Ministers’ Association in Japan decided to postpone their event to have fellowship with us at Chionin Temple. Therefore, we cancelled this entire tour at this time and decided to plan another tour after pandemic is over.

 

Thank you very much for your understanding. I pray for your good health and safety.

P.S.

If quarantine restrictions between Hawaii and Japan are lifted and if you are still interested in going to Japan, please let me know.  As I am expecting to attend Bishops’ meeting in Kyoto in October, I can help arrange your trip.

 

 

In accordance with the State of Hawaii & the County of Kauai's "Safer-at-home" order, our temple is reopened for our members.

 

We will restart in-person Special Services with your Kokua to practice social distancing, washing hands often and wearing a face-mask in the future.  We will continue to offer our Virtual Buddhist Services through Youtube.  Please check here.   

 

Also PDF file of our "Otsutome Book" is now available to download. 

 

Thank you very much for visiting us.  We pray for your safety and peace as we overcome this crisis of COVID-19 Pandemic.

    Aloha Mrs. Hamada,
    Thank you very much for joining in the virtual Sunday Service. I'm glad to see your comment. It was very nice seeing you during the Waikiki Parade last year. When you and your husband come to Kauai next time, please let me know! Please be safe!

    I liked the recording of "Tsukikage No" in this morning's on line service. It sounded really nice, much like the way we learned it in Sunday school at Hawi Jodo Mission nearly 60 something years ago. We did not sing the English words though.

    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.

    Mahalo.

    Chrystalle,
    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.
