Okuboji is the final temple in the 88-temple pilgrimage of Shikoku Island. It is a fitting conclusion, though worth visiting even if you have not gone to the others. Be sure to note the hundreds of offerings from pilgrims, most popular is to leave the staff used while making the circuit of the temples. Many claim that the temple has extraordinary healing abilities.
Okuboji is deep in the mountains, surrounded by old forests. The main temple has a backdrop of a rocky crag which is very impressive. I have been several times, but most highly recommend the fall when the tree leaves are fiery orange and red. It was also spectacular with a dusting of snow in the winter. No matter when you go, be sure to take a camera for fantastic photo opportunities.
