OSAKA TEAM EXPO2025
The LIFE Sacred Land Pilgrimage Projects.
Pilgrimage of LIFE
Japanese Heritage, Shrines, Temples, Nature, Historic Sites, Ancient Tombs
In Japan's sacred places, we re-discover the wonder of life.
The Japanese culture has long embraced the principles
of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through their value of
"all things in the forest" and respect for nature.
The Japanese people have always believed that they are a part of a greater life
that is interconnected from generation to generation, rather than viewing life
solely from an individual perspective. This concept has been ingrained in
every aspect of their lives, including clothing, food, shelter, art, culture, buildings, and ruins.
Being the oldest country in the world, Japan has been blessed with spiritual and cultural richness that can be found in nature, shrines, temples, historical sites, and traditional practices. By exploring and experiencing each region's unique spirit and values, we can rediscover the fundamental concept of life and reconnect with our origins.
Art of Life Relay Project
The Sacred Sites of Life Relay connects us to the very core of our existence.
Similar to the Torch Relay, this project seeks to ignite the vital energy that lies at the foundation of our life force and promote the development of local communities. This will be achieved by organizing a series of events at sacred sites of Japanese culture across the country.
Elevating the quality of life
Reviving regional pride
Fostering regional development through art and tourism
Izumo Taisha Shrine is providing special cooperation for this project.
We kindly request your support for
the Holy Land Pilgrimage project.
The experience we had through the Relay of Sacred Sites of Life was truly indescribable. Going forward, we will work together with local tourism to continue this project, while uncovering the magnificence of Japan's sacred sites.
The goal of this project is to establish a deep sense of harmony between life and regional development, by fostering connections with one another at the very core of our existence.
The project of rediscovering the true essence of life through visits to sacred sites is a collaborative endeavor that we hope everyone can participate in.
Whether it's through providing support in setting up, staffing, sound, or contributing financially, we welcome any form of support you can offer.
