March 11, 2018 marks the seventh anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquake. Kōtoku-in has invited the Shinto, Buddhist and Christian communities of Kamakura to mark the occasion with a day of interdenominational prayer.
On that day, we ask that those who visit the temple follow the instructions of temple employees and the staff of Pray Kamakura. We ask that you refrain from using camera tripods, and any other actions that might impede the ceremonies taking place.
We humbly apologize if this restricts your personal observances in any way. We are grateful for your understanding and cooperation.
