New Temple Predictions

I sure hope they build another one in Southern Japan.  They really need one.  The Tokyo temple is at full capacity.  And Church membership in the Osaka region is high enough to warrant at least one of those part-time temples (I don't know what the formal name for them is).

The problem with Japan is that because it's a densely-populated island nation, land is often at a premium. 

It's possible that any future temples in Japan will be done up how the church did the temple in Manhattan, that is they purchased an existing building, made one level the temple, and made the next level a chapel. Given how packed Osaka itself is (to the point of it blurring into several other major cities), I'm having a hard time envisioning any other way to go unless they somehow get permission to build within the mountains.

one way to help predict the location of temples is the population of members vs. temple located nearby.

Here is my best guess list for this year:

-Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia...

They've done that in Japan already.  The Kobe Mission home is the same building as a stake center.  And the building footprint is very small.  It has multiple floors for both the mission home and the church.

Tokyo has an interesting story behind it.  The Church bought some vacant land outside of Tokyo many years ago.  They were waiting for the city to build out to warrant a temple.  At that time, some big developer wanted that land to build a big development.  Some people say it was Disney wanting to build Disneyland - Tokyo.

Whoever it was, they wanted to buy it from the Church.  At the time, it was Pres Kimball, but Elder Hinckley was the "Special Assistant."  He said no.

They then said, "We have this other property that is in the heart of Tokyo and we'll build any building you want on it for free and give you top dollar for your land."

Elder Hinckley said yes.  That is how we got a temple in downtown Tokyo in a prime real estate area.
