For those interested in Shingon training in America...
A newly formed extension of Eimei Kawakami's teaching and his Japan temple- Kunimiyama Daikoku-ji. From the website it seems like Kawakami-san makes visits in addition to this groups regular activities. I have yet to meet with the priest leading the America group...but I hear he is enthusiastic about spreading esoteric Buddhism in the bay area.
They offer a variety of Mikkyo training and a temporary tokudo in addition to the life long priest ordination.
