Meet Wahiawa's Shin Buddhist Team

Rod Moriyama

Temple President for

Wahiawa Hongwanji Mission

Mr. Moriyama has served as our temple president for several years. Under his leadership we have invested in updating our infrastructure, built depth into our temple board leadership team, and fostered a dharma centered experience for anyone who touches our temple.

Rev. Kojun Hashimoto

Religious Leader for

Wahiawa Hongwanji Mission

Sensei Hashimoto has been a Jodo Shinshu minister in Hawaii for nine years and worked in Kogashima Betsuin, Japan, for six years before coming to Hawaii. He has been our temple Sensei for the past six years.

Dale Shimaura

Vice President, Membership & Outreach for Wahiawa Hongwanji Mission

Ms. Shimaura is the heart of our temple. If she is not planning for our next service, she is welcoming someone to our temple or helping a temple member. And if not there, she is taking care of her mother, nieces, and nephews.
