Meetinghouses

Since the 1970s, when the only 'built building' in Tōhoku was Sendai's Shibu (Kamisugi), 13 chapels have been built! In pre-Internet days, I traveled back to take photos of these new meetinghouses. For each location, I've compiled information, photos and Google map & street view links - click links in the table below. If you have feedback, feel free to 'Contact Us' - BTW, we need more historical 1970s-1990s (rented) meetinghouse pics (taken outside of the buildings). Admin Note: Starting in late 2017 under current mission President Sekiguchi, six cities marked with a # below were (re)opened, each receiving two missionaries. Meetings in those flegling cities are (obviously) held in rented buildings. I learned in August 2019 that by the time of the Jul 2019 split into two missions, Towada and Noshiro were no longer open and that missionaries no longer live in Goshogawara, but travel there from Hirosaki for Sunday meetings.
