Ezo-fuji

My family and our relatives had a memorial service for the forty‐ninth day after my father-in-law's death the last weekend.

The mountainous region on the way had still snow.

After the Buddhist memorial service, we had special lunch together and then we took his ashes to a temple. One of our relatives told us that there was something in the back of the temple.

It is well-known that many people go on pilgrimage to 88 temples in Shikoku, but it's very far a way from Hokkaido. So they have the room which has each 88 temples' sand and prayer things, where people who pray and step on the each 88 sand bags can receive blessing the same as visiting 88 temples in Shikoku.

The next day, our family went to the park to see cherry blossoms and took a boat there. It was sunny and a beautiful day.

We saw Mt. Youtei, Ezo-fuji on the way back to home. I miss real Mt. Fuji.

I sometimes forget where you are from, I think you are a child of Mt. Fuji. :)

I have heard about the pilgrimage in Shikoku, Shikoku henro. I love to read stories about it.

Hi Always visiting,

Thank you for your comment always.
Yes, I'm a child of Mt.Fuji. When I was younger, I used to see it from the house window everyday except cloudy.
Wow, you know even Shikoku henro. I don't know well about it, but some people even living in Hokkaido visit there.
