Hongwanji facility improvements completed for easier accessibility for all


Hongwanji- In preparation for the 750th Memorial for Shinran Shonin in 2011, final improvements of the Hongwanji grounds have been made and completed in time for this year’s spring observance conducted earlier this April. Walkways have been paved in the central courtyard allowing for smoother access to the main temple halls. Paths lead from the Goeido-mon (Founder’s Hall Gate) and Goeido (Founder’s Hall), and also the entrance way connecting the Amidado-mon (Amida Hall Gate), Ochasho (rest area), and Goeido-mon.
