UUA President Rev. Peter Morales is in the midst of a week-long visit with interfaith partners in Japan.  On Sunday, Rev.  Morales attended the worship service at the historic Universalist church in Tokyo: Dojin Church.  Members of the Tokyo Unitarian Fellowship (a largely ex-pat group) met with him there as well.

After lunch, Rev. Morales visited Rissho Kosei-kai (RKK) headquarters in Tokyo and joined its leaders for dinner. RKK is a six-million member, lay-Buddhist organization.

On Monday morning, Rev. Morales delivered a congratulatory speech during the RKK annual “Founding Day” event.

From Tokyo, Rev. Morales traveled to Kyoto to visit with other interfaith partners, including Mitsumi-kai, a recent member of the International Association for Religious Freedom (IARF). See previous blogposts about the visits here.

A photo album from the visits that have happened so far is available:
