Run with Kobo Daishi Trail Race--May 6, 2015, Shiraishi Island #japan

On May 6, the last day of the Golden Week holidays in Japan, Shiraishi Island is holding the inaugural Run with Kobo Daishi 10k Trail Race (there will also be a 5k course) to raise money to maintain the Shiraishi Pilgrimage, a replica of the 88 Temple Shikoku Pilgrimage. The race, which will take place on a section of this ancient Buddhist pilgrimage route, hopes to raise enough money to maintain the entire 10 k trail and put up signage so tourists can enjoy this historical part of Japanese culture. The race is sponsored by the Moooo! Bar and the Shiraishi Island Tourism Association.
