Although Kanna’s mother was to complete the mission, her passing prompted Kanna to finish the rest, hoping she could reunite with her dead mother in the Gods’ land at the end of her journey. What is Kamiari Month? Japanese people believe that gods dwell in various things. There are gods of the water, wood, and even gods that keep us safe from the virus. Every October, thousands of gods leave their places of residence to gather in the Izumo region to have a conference. As such, October is also called Kamiari month— only in the Izumo region— which means the month with gods, and Kannazuki— in every other region— which means the month without gods.

Differing from the more well known art of Kendo, Iaido seeks to strike down the opponent in one quick draw of the blade and puts focus on training the mind and body through developing an appreciation of the spiritual relation the blade has in connecting life, death, movement, and stillness. To learn more about the history, philosophy and cultural significance of Iaido as well as how you can take part in an Iaido experience, please check out our full article linked below! https://www.thehiddenjapan.com/iadoexperience...
