About the pilgrim:
“Shikoku O-Henro”, or the Shikoku Pilgrimage, is a religious journey to 88 temples in Shikoku. The total distance of the journey to these sacred places (temples) associated with Kobo Daishi Kukai is approximately 1,200 km. Historically, it is said that 1,200 years ago Kobo Daishi Kukai went on this pilgrimage for his own training. After the passing of the Heian and Muromachi periods, this pilgrimage spread among the general public in the early Edo period and became a central region of religious worship. Nowadays, as many as 500 thousand people make this pilgrimage. Among the pilgrims are tourists from all over the world, making their pilgrimage for various reasons.
