... to walk along under the main altar in pitch black darkness. Part of the way along there is a door with a key in it and pilgrims come from all over Japan to touch the key which is known as the key to Paradise. We all had to feel our way along the passage by touching the wall which was lined with wood and. I think that most of us were relieved to reach the end and climb stairs once more into the light of the temple. We then sat for a few minutes listening to the monks chanting ...
