Amazing! thanks RJ for the beautiful photos, I so want to make a pilgrimage. I really thank you and From the Earth for sharing yours with me. It just adds to my faith:)

Just in case if this is helpful to some: Jikaku Daishi = Ennin, Ganzan Daishi = Ryogen.

They all received buddhahood with their current bodies (genshin)" Thus these verses state that the dharma nature is like a great ocean. No right or wrong is preached (within it) Ordinary people and sages are equal, without superiority or inferiority

By the way, remember about the two Tendai warring factions? Yeah, Mīdera, the Jimon (寺門) faction and had its hondo uprooted and relocated to Enryakuji (aka the Sanmon [山門]), so...

Now that we're done with the selection of all 3 (plus 1) main sites, here's samples of votive objects from various places.
Note that it's a mix of some the previous 2014 trip and this year's.

I guess Hieizan could attract even nature lovers, hikers or those purely there for cultural reasons if its religious legacy isn't a magnet for them. Lots to offer and potential for development in the coming years as I see it.
