On Friday we had time in the morning to shop and visit sites on our own. Several of us traveled to Yamazaki and visited the Yamazaki Distillery. Following the distillery we met up with the rest of our group at the Osaka Castle. We visited the site on Osaka grounds where Rennyo Shonin hung his robe to establish the Honganji in Osaka. Friend Chisa Matsunaga took us to a wonderful robatayaki in Osaka.
