The Los Angeles Buddhist Church Federation will hold a one-year memorial service for the victims of the Eastern Japan Earthquake/Tsunami that occurred last year on March 11. 

The memorial service open to all who wish to attend will begin at 2:00 pm at the Nishi Hongwanji Buddhist Temple (815 E. First Street, Little Tokyo).  Ministers of the seven member temples (Higashi Honganji, Jodoshu, Koyasan, Long Beach, Nichiren-shu, Nishi Hongwanji, Zenshuji) will participate in the service led by officiant, Rimban Hiroshi Abiko.  The Dharma message will be delivered by Rinban Noriaki Ito, chair of the LABCF. 

At exactly 2:46 pm which is the time the earthquake struck last year, a memorial ringing of the Bonsho, the massive bell that stands in the temple courtyard, will occur.
