Notice from the Nichiren Shu News Editorial Board

COVID-19 has created a worldwide crisis forcing changes in work and lifestyles for the safety and wellbeing of all people. As you may know, the Japanese Government issued an emergency declaration from April 7 to May 30 to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

In response to the Japanese Government’s declaration and the current situation, Nichiren Shu decided to close the Head Office of Nichiren Shu from April 20 to May 30. The Japan Post Office has also suspended mail service to many international destinations. Under these conditions, it is impossible for us to print and mail Nichiren Shu News at this time.

The June issue of Nichiren Shu News is being prepared as usual. However, we will be posting a downloadable PDF of the June issue of Nichiren Shu News (#238) on the NBIC website available June 1:

Please use the opportunity to print your own copy of the paper until physical copies of the issue can be printed and sent out.

Situation updates and other notices will be posted here on the Nichiren Shu English language portal site News section.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your kind understanding.
