What to Expect

We are going to walk through the forest of ceder trees and urban area in Chichibu of Saitama prefecture. One can see japanese life style in rural area, then can feel the atomosphere of japanese buddhist temples. What is interesting to walk in this area would be what each temple has each benefit for pilgrims and each character. Having local dish during spending the day and taking the bath after a long walk are marvelous.
