I recently stumbled upon a video titled, ハルノヒの一日 (天理教はるのひ分教会) A day at HARUNOHI (also on DailyMotion), which depicts the daily activities of Harunohi Church. Not all churches run the same, nor are always filled with followers like this one, but I think this shows what a traditional Tenrikyo church should be like, where followers come in and out through out the entire day tending to the needs of the church and take part and the morning and evening services, cleaning of the shinden (santuary), learning & practicing the teachings, and administering the Sazuke.

I apologize for not doing an immediate follow up to the \”What does a Tenrikyo Church look like around the world?\” article posted a few months ago. I was not able to because I did not get any responses to the article until I asked a friend if she could help me out. So I decided to start a series featuring one church at a time.

As a Tenrikyo follower from Hawaii, I am not sure how each structure around the world where the daily and monthly services are performed looks like. That\’s because I don\’t even know what every church in Hawaii looks like.

I also wonder what kind of structure comes to mind when people hear the name \”Tenrikyo.\” I can only imagine most non-followers may be even more confused than me when it comes what the average Tenrikyo church is supposed to look like.
