About the Enza-no-kai Organization

The Enza-no-kai Organization is made up of twenty shrines and temples in the prefectures of Shimane and Tottori, and combines the two religions of Shintoism and Buddhism. It was established with the aim of showing the world the importance of harmony and of respecting the 'en' that exist between us all, which has a long tradition in the Izumo region. We also hope that many people will come to the Izumo region, the birthplace of the Japanese spirit, and that on this spiritual journey they will look deep within and find themselves as being a part of the great universe. With this aim, the group established the Izumo Shinbutsu Pilgrimage.
