Mission

The mission of the Association of Hindu Society of Tokyo, Japan is to spread the rich spiritual heritage of Hindu/Sanatan philosophy and religion to devotees of all ages and nationalities. The association intends to provide a common platform and resources for the Hindu community, including Promoting the awareness of principles and practices of Hinduism. Invite renowned/world-famous Hindu teachers and scholars to present topics on Hinduism, enhancing the understanding of it. Celebrate festivals such as Holi, Mahashivarati, Rama Navami, Dassera and Diwali, and other events. Bring all topics, issues, and events under one roof to establish a strong Hindu community. Seek active participation, guidance, and support from local people in our journey to be a cultural hub in our community.

We strive to provide leadership and promote awareness of the Hindu community. Educating the youth on the principles and practices of Hinduism & spreading the Sanatan ideology & engagements of local peoples in Japan among our goals as we aim to be a diverse and peaceful group in becoming a bridge between peoples of all races in the greater Tokyo area. We are striving for establishing an active Hindu Society for the devotees & having an active platform for the cultural and religious congregation for peoples who are interested in having a common podium for expressing, exchanging & practicing Sanatan Ideology.

Vision

We hope to create a Hindu association that celebrates our religion while educating others and promoting awareness. The Association of Hindu Society of Tokyo looks forward to building bridges with anyone from the local community and beyond. As our community continues to grow, it is becoming evident we need a facility to accommodate our activities and religious rituals. As we become more familiar with our new home and environment, we miss the sanctity and richness of our own temple or place of worship.

Currently, many of us are practicing in our homes and would like to find a space to create our own temple in Tokyo. Association initiators would like to rent a house or apartment to start a Hindu temple. Once we have enough funding, our future goal is to build a Shiva Panchyan temple paying homage to Shiva and four other Gods. Our visions include celebrating religious festivals throughout the year and regular worship ceremonies among the congregation. Along with practicing Hinduism, we hope that Hindu priests and scholars from all over will perform rituals or present lectures on Hindu topics to increase awareness of our culture and who we are. Anyone interested in celebrating religious rituals and or participating in social events is encouraged to attend.
