If you come to Shikoku, why not try taking the journey of the Henro to calm your heart?

2014.08.29
Kobo Daishi is one of Japan's Great Buddhist figures. People who travel on a pilgrimage to the 88 temples in Shikoku associated with Kobo Daishi are called "O-henro." The people of Shikoku have a culture of offering food and drink to these pilgrims who come in search of salvation and healing. It's traditional to walk to each of the 88 temples, but recently many people visit just a few temples, or use a car to do the pilgrimage.
Even if the distance is short or the number of days few, if you make your O-henro journey with a sincere attitude, it will surely refresh your spirit.
