NOTE: Senior luncheons have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Usually, these luncheons are held twice a month and feature great food, music, exercise, companionship, and lots of laughter. This is a Project Dana* Program supported by the Wailea Village Historic Preservation Community. Miyo Harumi of Miyo's Restaurant prepares the food for the Senior Luncheons at Hakalau Jodo Mission. (*Dana means selfless giving.)
Note: Due to COVID-19 our Bon Dance has been cancelled this year. Usually, each August, the Jodo Mission comes alive with the celebration of Obon, a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one's ancestor. This festival is complete with music, dancing, laughter and lots of food! Usually, dancing takes place on the lawn in front of the Temple.
