In The Hawai‘i Herald’s May 17 edition featuring the statewide bon dance schedule, we inadvertently failed to include information on Hilo Higashi Hongwanji Mission’s obon activities.

Hilo Higashi Hongwanji Mission will hold its bon dance on Saturday, Aug. 10, at its temple at 216 Mohouli St. The hatsubon service will begin at 6 p.m., followed by the bon dance from 7 to 10:30 p.m. The temple will hold its ura-bon service the next morning (Aug. 11) at 10 a.m.

For more information, call (808) 935-8968. The Herald would like to thank Hilo Higashi Hongwanji Mission president Roy Hamakawa for calling this oversight to our attention.
