A Tenrikyo follower in Hawaii, Tomohito “Kaishow” Kaisho, had decided that he wanted to help those in Sendai by going there! Friends from the Stamina Ramen shop of Tenri-shi planned to go to Sendai and cook and serve 2,000 bowls of Stamina Ramen for the people in Sendai. As he explained, “We’ll just drive around and when we see people, we’ll stop, play music, and cook ramen.” He will be departing tomorrow.
A few weeks ago, a message circulated around the Tenrikyo Hawaii community to bring donated American or Hawaiian candies or snacks with a photo and message to brighten the lives of the children in the disaster-affected areas. As a result, he has collected dozens of candies and snacks to bring.
