Joint Hoonko Service

On January 18, 2015, we participated in a couple of special ceremonies in conjunction with a Ho-onko service (Shinran Shonin memorial) at Gardena Buddhist Church. Stephanie took part in a Seijin-shiki, or Coming of Age ceremony, which is a common observance in Japan for those turning 20 (the age of adulthood in Japan). Then the whole family took part in an Affirmation Ceremony, where we received our Buddhist names.
