Walking the 88 Temple Pilgrimage in Shikoku, Japan

In 2007, long time CORE member Kiyoko and 3 friends walked the 1400 km 9th century Buddhist pilgrimage around the circumference of the island of Shikoku, Japan. They visited all of the 88 main temples and 20 secondary (bangai) temples. Unlike the Camino, only a few thousand people walk this pilgrimage each year (although there are hundreds of thousands of ‘bus pilgrims’). Kiyoko and friends faced numerous challenges,the primary one being they were not literate in Japanese and unable to read the pilgrim guidebook with maps or road signs, and as a result they were often lost. Kiyoko’s very limited Japanese language skills didn’t help either. They met only a few people who spoke English (Shikoku gets few tourists) but everyone along the way was extremely friendly, hospitable, and generous. The pilgrimage took 2 months and was an unforgettable experience.
