Honen's 800th and Shinran's 750th memorials
« on: March 01, 2010, 09:49:56 pm »
2011 marks the 800th memorial for Honen the founder of Jodo Shu or Japanese Pure Land Buddhism.  Meanwhile, one of his disciples and founder of the related Jodo Shinshu Buddhism, Shinran, will coincidentally be commemorated in his 750th memorial that same year.

Is anyone planning to visit Japan for this, and if so what are they planning to do?
