Kansai Research Trip, by Noriko Takase

As a staff member of AIKI NEWS, I recently made a tour of the Kinki and Kansai areas of Japan, a region intimately bound up with the life of Aikido Founder Ueshiba Morihei. During the course of the 10-day trip which began on the second of September and continued until the llth, I was able to visit Shingu and Tanabe cities in Wakayama Prefecture, Ayabe City (site of the headquarters of the Omoto Religion) in the Kyoto Metropolitan District, and finally Osaka in search of resource material relating to the life of 0-Sensei.
