UNDISCOVERED SPIRIT

~Feel the deep spirituality at the ancient shrines and pilgrim trails~

Where did the Japanese, who see divinity in trees and rocks, and have compassion for
nature, get this sensitivity from? Perhaps there are clues to be found in the Jomon
Culture which for a period of over 10,000 years lived in harmony with nature. Or we
can catch a glimpse in the religious ceremony that has been going for over 1000 years
and is still performed today. We will introduce you to some trips that will take you
to the source of this deep spirituality found in Japan.

For those that want a deeper knowledge about Japan, take a journey to discover the source of the legends at the Sacred Land of Amanohashidate and the quaint port town of Ine
