On July 4, 1924, Rev. Sekizen Arai of Sojiji and Genpo Kitano the head priest of Eiheiji at the time granted this temple its new name, “Shinjuzan Taiheiji.” On November 16, 1926, Territory of Hawaii Governor Wallace R. Farrington formally recognized the temple as “Soto Mission of Aiea.”
On March 1, 1965, the construction of a new temple was completed, replacing the old termite damaged structure that had stood for over 40 years.
Although the Aiea Taihei Japanese Language School closed after 75 years in 2000, the Soto Mission of Aiea is a very busy temple serving its members and their families and the Aiea community. Today, Taiheiji continues a variety of activities in both new and traditional. They include Sunday Services, New Year’s Blessing Service, Hanamatsuri, Bon Service, Bon Dance, Bodhi Day Celebration, Zazen, Annual BBQ Chicken Fundraiser, Japanese Taiko druming, Fujinkai, Baika-ko, Aiea Taiheiji Yagura Gumi, temple maintenance and beautification, Judo, Karate, Kendo, Aikido, Iai-do, Fukiya, Shigin, and Soroban.
If you are interested in learning more about Japanese culture and tradition, feel free to stop by the temple and join the fun. We will be waiting for you with our spirit of “Aloha”.
