Autumn is one of the best seasons to visit Japan. The weather is crisp and mild, there is an abundance of delicious fruits. Of course, you can enjoy fresh sushi if you're not a vegetarian. So why don't we make a trip there this autumn? Here’s an announcement for a Pure Land Buddhism convention, Ho'on'ko*. It's going to be held mid-October in Toyama Prefecture in Japan. For those who would like to attend, here's the best travel plan for you.

*Ho'on'ko: a Pure Land Buddhist annual convention which is held to repay the debt of gratitude for Master Shinran's* birth. Usually, it's held in October.

*Master Shinran: a Japanese Buddhist monk who was alive 800 years ago in Japan, and the founder of Pure Land Shin Buddhism

Lectures will be given at the 2,000-Tatami-Mat* Hall, the largest hall in the world for listening to Buddhism. This hall was built for the sole purpose of listening to Buddhism.

*Tatami-Mat: a tatami is a type of mat used as a flooring material in traditional Japanese-style rooms, the surface of which is made of soft rush, so it gives off a good smell.

After the convention, we will have a short-term training course at the Buddhist academy, the purpose of which is to give lectures on how to practice Buddhism. All these enthusiastic Buddhists are welcome.
