April 15 (Thu) Hot Coal Walking on Miyajima Island

Hot Coal Walking on Miyajima Island (at Daishoin temple)
15 April 11:00 Hrs

Join the crowd of people and take part in the "walking over fire ceremony" at Daiganiji Temple (Nov 5) and Daishoin Temple (Nov 15)on the island of Miyajima.

Walk across hot coals "to pray for protection from illness and disaster."
You can join the other participants who go through physical pain in hopes of future comfort.

Some claim that if you have
"a pure heart" or good reasons to will yourself across the coals....
it doesn't hurt at all.
