Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple

this is a picture of the Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple on Third St. in Little Tokyo. I have always loved this building. It sits there, on that street, with much dignity. Below is a passage taken from the History tab of the Higashi Honganji website.It gives you a brief history of the temple. I would put it in quotes but I have not as yet learned how to use the block quotes in the blog editor. Wow. so much to learn.

Temple History
The Los Angeles Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple has served the Buddhist community since the turn of the 20th Century. In 1904, Rev. Junjyo Izumida established the first Japanese Buddhist temple in Los Angeles, located at 229 1/2 East Fourth Street. The temple was relocated several times, to San Julian Street in Little Tokyo (1907), to Savannah Street (1911), and in 1926, the temple was moved to 118 North Mott Street in the Boyle Heights area of East Los Angeles, where it remained for the next fifty years. The present temple built in 1976 marked the return of the Higashi Honganji to its roots in Little Tokyo.

Stretch out your left arm, far enough that you can wrap your palm around the base of the head. This is where the wooden part of the head ends and the black "neck" of the violin with the 4 strings are. You will play most all of your music from this area.
