We held Saitan-sai on January 1st at Little Tokyo for praying everybody’s prosperity, safe and healthy life as well as world peace. We wish you a new year filled with prosperity and happiness!
Arigato for all to come and pray at our booth. Arigato for volunteers to help our booth where was extremely popular in the event.
This year, we will start to organize 奉賛会Hōsankai which is a group of contributors for our shrine.
Many people have asked us the location for Shusse Inari Shrine of America and wish to visit to pray. Since Los Angeles is one of the highest land price area, we need huge help to make it happen. So that Hōsankai takes part of fundraising project for permanent place (or regular place or facility) of our Shrine. We hope you can play big role to help for fundraising and spread the word about our project to people who are interested in Shinto.
At the permanent (or regular place) of our Shrine, we would like to hold not only Omatsuri (ceremonies) and Gokitō (services) but also various events such as Japanese language class, culture class, Japanese Mythology class, exhibitions and En musubi party as well as Oharae-no-kotoba writing class, making Chino-wa, Shime-nawa, Shime-kazari and Kadomatsu.
We will announce our Hōsankai launch information when it is ready.
May the Shusse Inari Spirits be with you!
Rev. Izumi Hasegawa
