It was an absolute pleasure to visit the place where my paper was made.
November 20, 2017: Shirotori Onsen to Temple 1. We started our Henro pilgrimage on September 28, 2015 at Temple 1. Today, we complete the circuit, visiting all 88 temples on the Henro-michi and returning to our starting point at Temple 1.
