A Day in The Japanese Mountains: Pilgrimage To The 2000 Years Old Afuri Shrine

Japan by Food -- Jun 05
Step outside of the big city and connect with an ancient part of Japanese culture. Shizuka travels to Isehara to learn all about the performance art of Noh, experience a pilgrimage to Afuri Shrine, and of course, enjoy the delicious local food!
During the journey up to Afuri Shrine, Shizuka carried a “samedachi”, a large wooden charm representing a sword to offer at the shrine. At the end of the pilgrimage, Shizuka toasts to the gods and shares a special meal called “naorai”, complete with a glass of beer and a sweet matcha treat.
