2012 Jan.15th Path of Prayer Kumano Kodo Walk

Path of Prayer Kumano Kodo Walk

Let's enjoy the Kumano Kodo walk.

The Kanji word for 2011 is
絆 (kizuna, or emotional ties).

We have stronger bonds with everyone since the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake and tsunami suffered earlier this year.

In 2012, we will wish for a speedy recovery and to have deeper bonds with others.

The Kumano Kodo has a long history of about more than 1,000 years.

Let’s start the new year off right by walking from Hosshinmon-oji.

This bilingual event will give you a chance to start learning English and Japanese.  Come and enjoy the Kumano Kodo walk.
