Shikoku 88 temples pilgrimageKonichi wa!
After 7 days of pilgrimage on the St. Jakobs -Route from Koblenz (Germany) to Metz (France) I found the August-Edition of "Geo", the equivalent in Europe to "national geographic", in Thionville and read therein "Le tour de l`ame en 88 temples: Shikoku, Japan.
About 15oo km of walking, about 3 months time is required for the tour in Shinkoku.
Has anyone done the temple-route by walking (not by travel-organisations as by Minibus etc.) and can give some experience about walking distances, accomodation, costs?
Thanks to all experienced pilgrims on this route thinking of spending a little bit of their lifetime to answer my request:
"Eine gute Tat stirbt nie" ( = a good deed never dies).
Kind regards- heinzwolfgang

Obviously the whole site is about the Henro Pilgrimage..
If you are arriving in Tokyo and want a warm-up/taster then do the Fudashou trail around Chichibu, just north-west of Tokyo. Its 100km, 34 temples in all and - as with the Henro - at each temple there is someone who will stamp your book and the unique and of course always beatifully paint the unique temple calligary kanji.

Something with maybe "weely" or so in his post: I was very much impressed by this description. Please help me to find this topic AGAIN WITH ALL contributions.
