12/31 New Year’s Sale & Service

A Buddhist New Year’s Eve gathering, with a Buddhist service, Japanese food for sale and sales of Japanese items (dolls, prints, dishes and more!). Food: traditional plain mochi, mochi desserts & inari sushi ($8). Reserve the traditional mochi via email.

If you are looking for a spiritual way to literally ring in the new year, come to the Joya-E “Bell of the Last Night” Service (6:30 pm) to Ring Out 2023! and Ring In 2024! This is a short, family-friendly Buddhist service, where attendees will join in to ring the large Kansho Bell a total of 108 times, to symbolically ring away the 108 passions which inflict people. The proceeds support our Minister’s education.
