THE HOLY CUSTOM TAKES PLACE ONTHE DAYS WHEN KANNON'S BLESSINGSARE AMPLIFIED
The custom of the Thousand-day Pilgrimage, during which one day of prayer is equivalent to a thousand days' worth of meritorious prayers, took root alongside the spread of the worship of Kannon. It has widely gained popularity as the event for which the Kannon's blessings are amplified. On these days, you can feel the great compassion of Kannon, who earnestly listens to every person's vows and worries and strives to relieve each torment. During the period of Thousand-day Pilgrimage, the nainaijin (the innermost sanctuary) in Main Hall is specially opened to the public in the evening as well as in the daytime.
