We regret to inform you that our Irei-sai on Saturday, March 7th, at LAPD Headquarters has been canceled. The Irei-sai is part of the Love to Nippon program. The Love to Nippon itself has been canceled due to the coronavirus.
However, Shinto Shrine of Shusse Inari in America will hold a private Irei-sai at the US branch office by Rev. Hasegawa on March 10th, 10:46 pm (it is the time when the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake occurred).
So I hope everyone will take a moment and pray with me, wherever you will be at that time, and look in the direction of Japan to show respect to the spirits who lost their lives during 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and Tsunami as well as the 2016 Kumamoto Earthquake.
Memorial service for the victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombs will be held on this Saturday, February 22nd, 12:15 pm at Little Tokyo. Please pray and pay respects with us for the spirits of the victims of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bombs. (Free for attending to Irei-sai).
After the memorial service, our head priest, Rev. Izumi Hasegawa, will be joined on stage by children who will read peace messages from Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the Mixed-Arts show”Afternoon of Peace: Hiroshima & Nagasaki Experience” (produced by Rev. Hasegawa with support from President Obama’s sister). We have some give-away tickets on a first-come, first-served basis. Please reply to this email if you are interested. Note: Tickets are not required for attending Irei-sai.
