On Sunday from 10 a.m.— 2 p.m., Lawai International Center welcomes all to experience the 88 shrines of Lawa‘i.
Lawai International Center, a non-profit community project, is an archaeological and cultural treasure in a valley that has long been recognized as a healing sanctuary. In 1904 the first generation of Japanese immigrants built 88 shrines replicating an ancient pilgrimage of 88 temples in Shikoku, Japan. Today, it is the only such site existing outside of Japan and is open every Sunday for the month of March or by appointment. Volunteers are bringing these shrines and this valley back to prominence as an international center for compassion, education and cultural understanding.
Donations will be accepted with gratitude. For more information call 639-4300, LM@hawaii.rr.com or visit www.lawaicenter.org.
