Join us as we listen to a story in simplified Japanese about the Shikoku Pilgrimage, known as the "Henro" in Japanese. In November, international residents and others in Kagawa Prefecture had the opportunity to trek up to Yashima Temple, the 84th of the 88 sacred Buddhist temples along the journey. On the program we highlight terms related to the Henro, talk about a legendary Japanese cultural figure, learn about temple etiquette and consider the role of religion in Japanese society.
