Talk about being duped by the family. The "kings", Mr. and Mrs. Narita, they poured millions of yen into that place every month for years. At one point we had about 300 people at the HCS and in the surrounding houses. The Mr. and Mrs. would be giving 5 to 6 mil yen every month. Don't know what exactly happened but I think the Video ministry moved to the States and after that it just turned into a ghost town.

The picture was taken within the last month. TF still lives there but the place looks like a run down trailer park. Everything is run down, falling apart, trash all over the place, etc.

That picture must have been taken Pre-HCS, It used to be called the MBH, Masami-San had it built on top of the hill she bought as a prayer tower, or shrine, It was all grown over with trees as you see in this picture. However around 1988 the Family took it over and cut down all the trees you see lined around it and renovated the building which had turned to shambles, So looking at the this picture I believe it is pre-1988. What a freakin joke the HEavenly City School. Duh

I just visited the HCS with a friend, to pick up some tools my dad left there a couple of years ago. The park is gone, Its been totally leveled. the pyramid hill is over grown an there is hell new houses all over the place. there about 40 ish people in the main building, and they still have possession of the white house, the blue house, and the brown house. as well as buildings A,B, and C. It was kind of weird going back but it was good to see the family loosing its grip on that area.(reply to this comment

No, this is recent. I visited the HCS shortly before I left Japan in 2002 and the pyramid already looked pretty much a shambles. There were only about 50 people living there and most of those people will related to the recording studios and CRO's, Phoenix and Margie. But since that time all of the above people have moved out so I don't know who is living there now.

When I walked around the grounds for the last time, the pool area, the kickball/soccer field, around to the N's house, and further to the Fountain House and then back again, there were so many memories. As they say, Elvis has left the building. I was there at about the most nostalgic time possible--Autumn. There were leaves blowing around everywhere, the trees were almost bare, it was very, very sad. Only because most of my memories of growing up are there, and I have to give them up as though they never happened, so where is that part of my life? I can never take my kids back and say, "this is where I grew up. This is where we used to swim in the summer". God, how depressing.

The Dorm has long since been torn down and made into a parking lot for the hotel accross the street. A lot of bad and some good memories went down with that place, and are going down with the HCS. Pitty, one day we will have no places and no items to go back to. It's like we never existed in that time and space. It was all a dream.

Does The Family or a Family member own the HCS property?

Yeah, it's still there. Old, beaten up and run down. The LIN and some other office work go on there. From what I heard it's mostly a bunch of Japanese nationals. Oh, and Wendy and Berry too.- The people who approve the lyrics to the Family music.(reply to this comment

OMG!!! Are you an SC 'vet'? That guy could not stop with the 'sodomy' testimonies! And he was always far too interested in the teenage males in the home. of which there were always a good number, being that it was the SC. Harmless, really - just incredibly annoying and intrusive.(reply to this comment

Yep, I figured you'd catch that one. The problem is, he should've just stayed true to his sexuality and he'd be one happy camper.. (reply to this comment

Yes, but I suppose his male interests might have been pretty pissed off campers.(reply to this comment
