​​Akemashite Omedeto!

Happy 2019- The Year of the Boar.  Those who were born in 1923,1935,1947,1959,1971,1983,1995, or 2007 are Boars.  The Chinese sometimes refer to this as the Year of the Pig (I think it's better to say "I'm a Boar" than "I'm a Pig").

Hope everyone has started their new year dieting, and made resolutions for 2019.  

For us at Hongwanji Place, it will be to continue to provide a variety of new and exciting items for sale, and to extend our reach through various on-site sales at Conferences and Special Events (see our News and Updates page for a list of upcoming sales and events).
