京のキー Honen's exile to Shikoku

Honen's exile to Shikoku

Etsuyo, Jess and I were fortunate enough to see Honen's statue being moved from Chion-in to his new temporary home in Shikoku. The real Honen was once exiled to Shikoku, the smallest of Japan's main islands. Etsuyo had mentioned the missing statue when she visited the Miedo and it was pure luck that we were there to see the removal.
