If you want to ask the question, "What is religion?", why don't you just go to India, Israel, Italy, etc.?

So why was the first place I visited Tanzania, Africa?

In fact, Tanzania was the most important place I visited on my round-the-world trip and the core of this trip.

In this talk, I would like to share with you the inspiration for my journey and what I would like my students to feel from it.

Shinran Shonin Shinran Shonin Shinran Shonin's New Year Memorial Service at Nishikiori-ji Temple, the head temple of the Shinshu Kibe sect of Shin Buddhism

On June 16, 2022, I gave a talk at the Shinshu Kibe sect head temple Nishikiori-ji in Yasu City, Shiga Prefecture, for the Shinran Shonin Shinran Shonin New Year Memorial Service.

It was my first visit to the head temple in two years. Moreover, this time I was very nervous to visit the temple because I was a missionary.

We will continue to devote ourselves to this project and look forward to working with you in the future.
