The Children’s Pilgrimage, sponsored by Tenrikyo Church Headquarters, began on July 26. The sites are filled with activities and events designed to foster an attitude of gratitude and mutual help. Children’s smiles could be seen on each day of the festivities.
Tea tents and mist fans were set up as countermeasures against heatstroke.
The Oyasato Parade is held every night with marching bands, fife and drum groups, and floats. The Children’s Pilgrimage will be held until August 5.
