Shiraishi Henro Michi Clean-up April 27 #shiraishijima #japan
Tomorrow is the first Pilgrimage Clean-up of the season! Thanks in advance to all who are coming out to help save the Shiraishi Henro Michi, a mini version of the Shikoku Pilgrimage. We'll meet at 10 am in front of the Shiraishi Island ferry ticket office. First, we'll head to the beach for the shimabiraki ceremony and then we'll head off to clear the pilgrimage route of fallen trees, leaves and other debris. After the clean-up (about 3 hrs), we'll head back to the beach to the Moooo! Bar for some Otsukaresama drinks!
If you are coming to help tomorrow, you have a choice of two different ferries. The Shiraishi Ferry leaves Fushigoe Port in Kasaoka at 9 am. The other ferry is the Sanyo Kisen Express ferry leaving from Kasaoka Port at 9:10. Both arrive Shiraishi Island around 9:40.
Cleaning tools will be provided but please wear your own gloves. A fine day to frolic in the forest with the gods!
If you can't make this clean-up, please come to the second one on May 11. Contact us at shiraishireservations at yahoo dot com
