Join us on this off-the-beaten-track tour for an introduction to the two main religions of Japan. To kick things off, we will start at the very active Fudo-do Temple. With the stunning temple grounds as our backdrop, we’ll learn how Shintoism and Buddhism, Japan’s two primary religions, coexist. We’ll discover the differences between the two and how they represent the whole spectrum of life. We’ll watch a unique Buddhist ceremony known as a Goma ritual, held in the main temple hall. The ceremony involves burning a special kind of firewood as an offering to the principal deity, Fudo Myou. From Fudo-do, we’ll stroll over to Hachiman Shrine, which is best known for its close ties to the sumo world. The shrine is said to be the birthplace of Kanjin-zumō (founded in 1684) and the origin of current, professional sumo. Our last stop will be Kiyosumi to admire a traditional Japanese stroll garden. There has been a garden of some form here since the early 18th century but it was Iwasaki Yataro, the founder of Mitsubishi, who shaped it into the tranquil spot we know today.
Meg & Friends
Konnichiwa, We are Silvia, Misa, Tatsuro, and Seishi, a group of friends living and working full-time in Tokyo as tour guides. Whenever our friends visit from overseas, we like to take them off the well-worn path to provide local insight and guidance. We love learning and sharing info about Tokyo's ancient history and traditions and exploring the ever-transforming culture. It can be difficult to learn in-depth about how Japan's different religions play a role in everyday life so we're looking forward to sharing that insider knowledge with you.
