Pilgrims can travel a 35-stop circuit of holy sites in Hitoyoshi Kuma, each enshrined with the potent spirit of Kannon. Each site has a spiritual basis for gathering believers, and every one remains cared for by the local community. Every year, during the weeks of the spring and autumn equinoxes, all of the sites are exhibited to the public.
