Collective Remembrance Lantern

Those who will not be present at the ceremony or choose to not personally float an Individual Lantern may have their remembrances placed onto the original handcrafted wooden-frame Collective Remembrance Lanterns that will be floated from the canoes by volunteers.

Through Thursday, May 23, 2024, you may visit the Shinnyo-en Hawaii temple located at 2348 S. Beretania to write your remembrances on the specially prepared paper that will be placed onto a Collective Remembrance Lantern. The temple is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on days when it is scheduled to be open. (View the temple schedule).

Collective remembrances will also be accepted at the beach on the ceremony day from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m at the Collective Remembrance Tent located next to the Lantern Request Tent.
