Ganjin (Jianzhen) was a Chinese monk who was invited by Emperor Shomu and helped to propagate Buddhism in Japan.
Making the voyage to Japan at that time was very difficult and he failed 5 times. On the 6th time he lost his eyesight, but he came to japan, at last in 753, arriving in Akime in Bonotsu.

This walk is held in memory of Ganjin. You can walk looking at the beautiful scenery of the sea and hills on the course and the place where Ganjin arrived.
