The island of Shikoku, Japan contains an old Buddhist pilgrimage route around its perimeter - 88 temples over a distance of about 1200 km. There are long periods of asphalt walking followed by daunting climbs up and down mountain trails. It takes a couple of months to walk the full route, and like the el Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain, is a life-changing experience. This is one of those experiences where there isn't any goal other than personal transformation - it's not for dabblers.

We finally started at Zenrakuji Temple in the 30th Fudasho. Since I use a car, it is easy to get around, but if I move too quickly, the impression of each temple tends to fade, so I went to the temple along the way without forcing myself. This time I visited temples around Kochi City, but in the early spring of March, it was about time I met a group tour, in which case it was important to take time and allow extra time to visit the temple.

This time I traveled by train, so I headed to temples within walking distance of the station, temples 70, 77, and 78. I don't know if there is a season for the pilgrimage, but since it was generally the off-season near the end of the year, there were few worshippers at each temple, and the sutra offices were not crowded. Naturally, I also didn't see any group bus tours.

Although this was a pilgrimage by car, it was generally a day trip, so I finally entered Kochi Prefecture.

The first stop in Kochi Prefecture, Saimisaki-ji Temple, was quite a challenge. Located at the very tip of Cape Muroto, it took quite a bit of time to get there and back, to the point where I was worried about the time it would take to get back. Still, as I was driving down National Route 55, I saw many pilgrims on foot between Yakuoji Temple and Saimisaki-ji Temple.

I didn't visit the temples in order, but this time I visited temples in Zentsuji city. The main temple is "Zentsuji", which the city is named after, and is the head temple of the Zentsuji school of Shingon Buddhism with a large temple grounds. Furthermore, it seemed that most of the temples had "Japan Heritage" signs near the mountain gates.
