Bellows Japanese Cemetery Visit & Service

Photos by Dennis Tashiro

On June 10, 2019, 12 members and guests from Windward Buddhist Temple visited the Bellows Japanese Cemetery in Waimanalo. Located on the military base, it requires permission and an escort to visit. Rev. Sumikawa held a brief service and flowers were placed on the approximately 30 graves, many of which date back to the 1910s. We are hoping to make this into an annual Obon service and invite the family members of those buried at the site.
