A Journey of the Soul―The Shikoku Pilgrimage and its 88 Temples
Since the 17th Century, the 1,200-kilometer Shikoku pilgrimage has attracted people from around Japan to travel along its route. For over a hundred years, references to this pilgrimage have been made in materials written in English; increasingly more non-Japanese are coming to experience this unique, historic, arduous, religious journey. This book is a much-needed, easily accessible and portable guide to the eighty-eight temples. On each page, one can read about the history and development of each temple and study numerous old photographs. In book form or on the Internet, there is an abundant amount of information available on Kukai (Kobo Daishi), the deities seen at each temple, and how to prepare and carry out the pilgrimage; thus such explanations are not provided here. The Shikoku pilgrimage is a journey of the soul - a time to think, a time to focus on oneself, a time to forget the world from which you came, a time to selflessly support and encourage each other, a time to learn to be grateful, a time that will you will remember forever.
