A statue of the Angel Moroni was placed on the Tokyo Japan Temple December 10th, 2004 as spectators looked on. The temple was dedicated October 27, 1980, by President Spencer W. Kimball. The temple includes a parking garage in the basement and an upstairs apartment for the temple president and matron. With the new statue of the Angel Moroni, the distance from the ground to the top of the statue is about 180 feet.

When President Spencer W. Kimball announced at the start of the Tokyo Area Conference on August 9th, 1975 that a temple would be built in Japan, the congregation burst into applause, then tears. The Tokyo Japan Temple was Asia's first Latter-day Saint temple.

The Tokyo Japan Temple district covers membership in 26 stakes and 15 districts. The temple was designed to extend upward instead of outward. Many visitors comment on how the lines of the temple give a feeling of elevation and of drawing the heart and soul toward God.

"Obedience is the price, faith is the power, love is the motive, the Spirit is the key, and Christ is the reason." The motto of the Japan Fukuoka Mission can be applied not only to missionary work, but to everyday life. -BYU President Bateman
