Usually, you need to go to Shikoku Island in the western part of Japan by plane for a pilgrimage to 88 Buddhism temples and it takes so many days. But in a mountain in a rural area of Tokyo, you can experience the pilgrimage in a day trip in the similar way to one in Shikoku Island.
By showing a monk three red stumps, you can get the certification for the pilgrimage with beautiful red and black Chinese characters.

I used to be a director and producer for TV shows and had introduced Japanese customers to many interesting sightseeing spots. In turn, I would like to put my experiences into good use to share with overseas guests as I got a national license for English speaking tour guides in Japan.
I’ll suggest most exciting spots to your favorites and interests, for example, a good unknown spot for cherry blossoms in spring or turned red leaves in autumn, an authentic tea ceremony at a historical tea house if you are interested in it and a best selected spot for a cat or owl café if you like it.
Please let me know your favorites and interests. I would prepare you a most amazing plan.
