On June 16, Father’s Day, the Temple Members will be visiting Waipahu Taiyoji, the first Soto Mission Temple in Hawaii, as well as visiting Rev. Ryokei Ishii, who was one of our resident ministers here at Betsuin. After that, we will be going to the Hawaiian Railway in Ewa for a Private Train Ride to learn about the history of the Plantation Era and viewing the beautiful coast of Ewa.
