In response to the current COVID-19 spreading, Nichiren Shoshu Head Temple Taisekiji and all the local temples in Japan are postponing and canceling events with a large number of people in attendance. We are also encouraging believers to refrain from visiting the temples to maintain their health and safety, and to prevent further spread of the infection.
In the case of visiting your local temple to request any ceremony such as funeral ceremony, memorial ceremony, or Gojukai ceremony, please use protective measures such as wearing a mask.
For more details, please make queries to your local temple.
We do appreciate your understanding and cooperation with us.
