Welcome to the Hongwanji Place Website!
Hongwanji Place is a non-profit organization offering Jodo Shinshu/Buddhist themed items including books, Nenju and other gift merchandise.
Established in 1984 by the Southern District Dharma School Teachers League Special Projects Committee to provide access to Jodo Shinshu related items;
In 1999, we became a non-profit organization and our first store location was established on 1st St. in Little Tokyo. We are currently located at Senshin Buddhist Temple;
Through the years, we have facilitated publication of numerous Jodo Shinshu books, and fostered the proliferation of Jodo Shinshu through the sale of Nenju, and other religious themed gift items;
Our 100% volunteer staff makes most of our Nenju and Udenenju. We also offer Nenju repair;
We also have a full line of Jodo Shinshu gift items and accessories for Obon, Hatsumairi, and graduation;
Hongwanji Place is 100% volunteer run. We are always looking for energetic, creative Temple members to help us. If you are in the LA metro area and are interested in joining us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
