From what the sign says.
Tenrikyo was brought into existence in1838 by God the Parent, the creator of mankind, who revealed Himself through the living shrine, Miki Nakayama, whishing to enjoy alongside, us, humans, leading a joyous life.
Reverend Yoshio Shimizu, born in 1902 in Tenri City, Nara Prefecture, Japan, was the successor to the Tenrikyo Heishin Grand Church.
In 1929, for the purpose of missonary work and research, he ventured here alone. In midway to his goal however, he passed away. His ardent wish to spread the teaching of God the Parent was further perpetuated by fellow missionaries, and today, Tenrikyo persists worldwide.
In honor of his achievement in it's 50th year, this monument is hereby erected on this day of July 26, 1979.
