Jodo Shu Hawaii Otoba

This morning of Sunday July 1, 2018 we put up the Otoba for obon services for Jodo Mission of Hawaii, which are wooden boards with names of all the former members and their families who passed away. I’ve been serving on the board of directors since 2006, and as president since 2011.

Wakaba Network’s 5th Annual Installation and Membership Meeting

I spoke and read Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell’s commemoration and well wishes at Wakaba Network’s 5th Annual Installation and Membership Meeting on Saturday June 16, 2018 at Park Lane Ala Moana in Honolulu, Hawaii. The organization supports Japanese speaking people in Hawaii who are victims of crime. Honolulu Police Chief Susan Ballard made a nice speech on how she rose in the ranks as a woman and the plans she has for our community. There were also enjoyable entertainment, food, prizes, and goodie bags. Here, I’m with my friend Itoko Uchikura.
