About Seiganzan Myoshinji Temple

Myoshinji Temple is located in the quiet, rolling hills of Pinole, California near the beautiful San Francisco Bay. The temple itself can not be seen from Appian Way. It is actually located behind the Bay Park Retirement Residence which is the large housing complex (see photo below). Just go straight down the driveway between the Myoshinji and Bay Park signs, and you will see the temple and the temple parking lot in the rear.
