The year is drawing to a close and it was my dream to have a website up and running by the end of the year and thanks to Damian Jordan, who came to Shonenji through Helpx, that dream has been achieved.

This year's New Years Cards have the website address on them and I am looking forward to sharing news, ideas and photos here on this website.

Life is always busy here at Shonenji, especially the month of December. This next few days we are busy with "otorikoshi". This involves visiting our congregation's houses, chanting at their home altars and holding joint services for communities. I have one more day of teaching at public school left, two more days in the Board of Education and just over a week more of teaching English privately. Then it's New Year preparations. These culminate in the December 31st service at 11pm followed by rice gruel and ringing in the New Year on the temple bell.

I will keep you all updated as I learn more about using the website.

Please contact me with any comments, or even just to say that you have visited the site!

Thank you!
