Happy Birthday Nichiren! How do we celebrate?

How do Nichiren Buddhists (maybe specifically Nichiren Shu) celebrate Nichiren's bday?

Thank you for the reminder!

Remember, reflect, express gratitude, resolve to continue... practice for oneself and for others... Visit Tanjou-ji, if you can.

Not sure if this is a significant celebration. Births are not so important in Japan.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

Visit Taisekiji for the commemorative general Tozan, chant to the Gohonzon enshrined in the 5 storey Pagoda! If I can't get there then chant extra Daimoku
