One year has passed for those affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. As we look back at the past year of rebuilding and revitalization, our heart felt thanks go out to everyone for their generosity of thought, prayer and assistance to the Konkokyo Headquarters and the people of Japan.

Your generous contributions were added to the “Special Relief Fund for the Great East Japan Earthquake.”


As of 12/31/11 here is the breakout of how those funds were used:


24.5% sent to local emergency headquarters of affected prefectures (4) and cities (16).

10.8% sent to stricken churches (16 incurred damage of some sort).

2.8 %  sent to suffering members (93 families received aid)

9.0 % sent to volunteer groups performing relief activities in the affected areas. Three groups received a majority of these funds. The groups are:

The Konkokyo Tokyo Metropolitan Support Organization

The Konkokyo Osaka Disaster Relief Team

The Konkokyo Youth Association.


The Konkokyo Headquarters is reviewing proposals before applying the next round of relief support.


Thank you again for your generosity!

The Konko Faith: Our Creed

We believe in Tenchi Kane no Kami,

the Divine Parent of the Universe.

Our Founder, Konko Daijin,
embraced Kami's revelations and, as Divine Mediator,
answered the Call to Eternal Mediation.

Our continuing goal,

from moment to moment,

is to realize Kami within each of us.

We are fulfilled through Kami,

Kami is fulfilled through us.

The happiness of everyone

is Kami's greatest wish.

We give thanks for Kami's blessings -

mysterious, wondrous and mundane.

Blessings begin with our own hearts,

hearts filled with harmony and joy.

We pray wholeheartedly to Kami,

today and every day,

trusting Kami as our loving Parent,

finding peace of mind.

We live our faith in service
to Kami, each other, and our world -

nurturing and nurtured, mutually fulfilled.

We revere those who have gone before us,

spirits one with Kami, caring for us eternally.

We respect and appreciate other paths

taken by humanity toward spiritual fulfillment.
