I will pick you up at Seibu Chichibu station at 10:00 am and we’ll head up to the Mountains where an 800 year old Buddhist pilgrimage begins. At Temple 1 I will teach you how to properly enter and pray at a Buddhist temple. You can buy a “goshuincho”, (book for collecting temple and shrine stamps) here, and hang an "Ema" (wooden prayer board) with a special prayer or wish. At Temple 2 there is a section of the pilgrimage path that descends the mountain through an ancient Japanese cedar forest. Then it’s on to Temple 4, the most popular temple of the pilgrimage. We’ll have lunch at the noodle shop here before exploring the compound famous for it’s 1,300 statues, including a rare "Mary Kannon". I will share some of the history and secrets of the temple before we head back to Chichibu at 2:30. Back in town I will give you a map and point out temples and shrines you can walk or bike to (bike rental in front of station) if you want to keep exploring and collecting temple stamps on your own. Chichibu’s historic main street is lined with small shops and restaurants and dead ends at a 1,800 year old Shinto shrine. There is a great onsen in the station, and plenty of trains back to Tokyo. Recharge and reconnect in the sacred mountains that Tokyoites have made pilgrimage to for over a thousand years. You can see more photos on Instagram: #pilgrimagejapan
I am recommended by the Chichibu Pilgrimage Association. I’ve been exploring and photographing the pilgrimage since moving to Chichibu in 2010. My husband is the assistant to the head monk of the Chichibu Pilgrimage. A misconception people have about Zen Buddhism is that it’s strict and demanding. There is an etiquette, but Buddhist monks are friendly and relaxed. Zen is about being fully in the present moment, and meeting life with gratitude and equanimity. Zen is about immersing yourself in nature. “Let nature be your teacher”. Is an important Zen concept. Zen is about loving kindness towards yourself and others. Come experience Zen for yourself. I would love to be your guide. You can see lots more photographs and videos of the Chichibu pilgrimage on Instagram at #pilgrimagejapan.
