Temple 88: Ōkubo-ji

Top choice Buddhist Temple

in Kagawa Prefecture

The last of the Shikoku pilgrimage's 88 Temples sits in the mountains in the southeast of Kagawa Prefecture and is well worth a visit. It's fitting that walking henro should face a stiff climb to get to the final temple, though if they are doing it properly, they still have to walk back to Temple 1 to complete the circle – for the search for enlightenment is like a circle, never-ending.
