Thank you for your bazaar hinokishin!

Blessed with just the right amount of rain, we were able to conduct the 41st Annual Tenrikyo Bazaar without any major (if any) accidents and injury. We were caught a bit off guard with what seemed to be a larger crowd than ever with long lines forming not only for the rummage sale but also at the scrip booths.  There were some complaints about having to wait a long time to buy the scrips (because they came at 7:30am), there were other comments, like, “This is the best bazaar!” and “the prices are low.”  A long time member's daughter who came for the first time said, “Wow, this is a really big bazaar!”

We are truly blessed with this beautiful property, dedicated volunteers and the support of Bishop and Mrs. Hamada. I feel really proud to be a part of this event!  I feel we are fulfilling the purpose of the bazaar: to do nioigake (sprinkle the fragrance of the teachings) to the community.  Thank you all for your sincere hinokishin!

Rev. Owen Nakao
