2019 Toro Nagashi


The 41st annual Toro Nagashi Service and picnic was held on Saturday, August 17, 2019, at the Mayor Ann Rudin Peace Pond in William Land Park in Sacramento, CA.  This was the last Toro Nagashi service for Rev. Iwasawa, who is returning to Japan in September, and the first service for incoming minister Rev. Kanpo Mimatsu.  Commemorative lanterns, hand-painted by the Hatsubon families and Temple members, honoring recently deceased members were floated.  In addition to the potluck picnic, the Temple’s annual Obon Odori performance was held in conjunction with a performance by the Koyasan Taiko Group.  Click on a link to see other Toro-nagashi pictures: 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, historical pictures.
