Gardena Buddhist Church Presents Fujimatsuri Online Auction

The Gardena Buddhist Church was founded in 1926 by Japanese immigrants in the Gardena Valley of Southern California. For the past 95 years, the church has worked to help spread the Jodo Shinshu Buddhist tradition and also serve as a bridge to our community.

The recent pandemic has impacted many of our activities enjoyed by our members and community, both spiritually and socially. Fujimatsuri has been one of our biggest fundraisers to help support our church services, community social services for the elderly, and youth organizations. This is the third year in a row that we are unable to hold our annual Fujimatsuri fundraiser.

But, we have great news! We are thrilled to announce that we are hosting an online auction to help support our various programs!

The auction items were donated by members of our church, the community at large, and the estates in hopes that the temple would benefit. Some of our collectible gifts are no longer available in US Japanese gift shops. However, they can be found at our auction such as beautiful pieces of art, crafts, gifts, antiques, collectibles, glass, crystal and hollowware, dolls, hairspray, dishes and much more!

The closure of the temple and the cancellation of our major fundraisers prior to COVID has had a significant impact on our temple finances. Help us continue the legacy of the Gardena Buddhist Church by participating in this 2022 auction.

We hope that the items in our auction will bring enjoyment to you and your family. Auctions will begin on April 17 at 7:00 a.m. PT and auctions will end on May 1 at 7:00 p.m. PT. Visit at for more information on Gardena Buddhist Church and Fujimatsuri Online Auction.
