--BOOKS & PAPERS ABOUT THE PILGRIMAGE--
While i haven't read the book yet, according to Susan, "Takamure intended to make a solitary pilgrimage but met an old man of 73 who insisted on accompanying her as her servant and guardian because he believed she was an attendant of Kannon Bosatsu. En route, she was sometimes regarded as a deity and asked to cure diseases, she met various outcasts of Japanese society, she endured typhoons and tremendous heat. Takamure tells her story in a very emotional manner and it is very readable."
