A Buddhist Minister's Welcome Return

This past weekend saw the return of Imamura Sensei to the Los Angeles Koyasan Buddhist Temple in Little Tokyo. Imamura Sensei was one of the head ministers at the Koyasan Betsuin from 1972-1986. He will be taking over duties from three time retired Taisen Miyata Sensei to preside over Koyasan Temples in both Los Angeles and North America. We got to talk with him over a few shots of Sake' at a private Temple party  and found him to be warm, generous, and very friendly. While he claims to have forgotten how to speak English after not using it over the last 30 years, he promises to try to learn again. We at American Mishima welcome Imamura Sensei and wish him a successful tenure here in Los Angeles.
