Jikoen’s New Year’s Celebration
Jikoen’s Annual New Year’s Celebration Luncheon on January 27 brough together young and old to enjoy good food, entertainment and fellowship. The morning began with a temple service and a special new year’s message by Rev. Shindo Nishiyama. After the service, lunch was followed by entertainment that featured a surprise entertainer! A mystery pop singer from Tokyo joined the celebration and sang to an adoring audience. And as is traditional at Jikoen, the shishimai (Okinawan lions) entertained us with their acrobatic antics.
This celebration was a time for Jikoen to welcome old friends back to the temple and welcome new comers.
