The Buddhist Church of San Francisco is a Buddhist temple founded in the Jodo Shinshu school of Pure Land Buddhism (Mahayana).  It was established in Japantown in 1898 and initially served  Japanese and Japanese Americans in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, while continuing to honor its Japanese heritage, BCSF celebrates its welcoming spirit as a multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multi-generational community inspired by the teachings of Shinran Shonin.
