The Senshin Buddhist Temple has been near USC for nearly 90 years. The temple was started as a Japanese langauge school for Japanese immigrants, and since then has served as a religious and cultural center for Japanese community members and others who have an interest in Japanese cultural and Buddhism.
Leading your tour will be, Reverend Kodani, the pioneer of Taiko (Japanese drumming) which was founded in the US in the late 1960s. Kodani was the Senshin Buddhist Temple minister for 45 years, retiring in 2013. Today he continues to lead Japanese cultural activities in the temple, such as Taiko and Gagaku (Japanese court music) that he started 40 years ago. He most recently began teaching a Japanese ceramic class. Come join the tour of USC and the temple from this pioneer of Japanese culture and Buddhism.
