Spring has come to Maui!
from Rev. Yamaguchi

The island of Maui was blessed this year with lots of rainfall so we can welcome the spring months with lush green hills and valleys.

The lawnmower is running hard on temple grounds twice a week.

Because of the new roof, we do not have to worry about the heavy rain that happened a few times this season.

Hanamatsuri is coming soon. We will celebrate Shakyamuni’s birthday on April 6 (Sunday) at Mantokuji Mission this year. We are expected to have an official from Myoshinji and our old friends from Miyagi as well. It is so fortunate that we are able to keep having traditional activities with many people’s participation. We are looking forward to seeing you there.
