The mission of the SBWA is to serve and support the Buddhist
Church of Sacramento and to promote a better understanding of the
Jodo Shinshu teachings. The SBWA was founded in March 1901 and
was known as the Sacramento Bukkyo Fujinkai. It was
formally inaugurated in 1903 by a group of pioneering
issei. The leadership of this organization was
undertaken by the resident minister’s wife until 1960.
Sakura Gakuen Japanese Language School is a nonprofit school
which teaches not only the language, but the culture and
tradition of Japan. Our mission is to provide excellent Japanese
language education for children and adults of diverse
backgrounds. All are welcome to learn Japanese in a small class
setting from our dedicated bilingual professionals.
