Every two years CPI (Church Planting Institute) holds a nationwide conference in Japan for pastors, missionaries, and other leaders of the church. It is a great time for spiritual renewal, as well as sharing ideas and networking. It is the only conference of its kind that I know about in Japan.
This is the ofuro (Japanese bath) at the hotel. It was the only place we could take showers and bathe at the conference. The water was really hot, though! I could only stay in for a few minutes and was always dizzy coming out. I went in 3 times the last day of the conference!
