Rev. HOJO's blog: Dharma message, reflection, and awareness


I'm the resident head priest of Joganji Buddhist Temple.

I was born in 1969 and reaised at Joganji Buddhist Temple.  When I was 16 years old, I became first ordained of Pure Land Shin Buddhist tradition, and earned Master digree of Buddhist Studies at Ryukoku University, at the same time I became full ordained as Pure Land Shin Buddhist priest.  At 26 years old I moved to the United States of America as the oversea's Buddhist priest of Shin Buddhism with Zen Buddhism practice.

I returned to Japan in 2014 as the head priest of Joganji Buddhist Temple.


My interest is horse riding, Jogging, and traveling with Onsen hot-springs.  I have own family, my lovely wife, Satomi.  She is first ordained as a Shin Buddhist and a Pediatrician as MD.
