Shikoku Pilgrimage: Imabari

Reblogging from a wonderful blog I started following before I went to Japan.

My list of things I want to do if when I return to Japan is growing!

  1. This is a great site Sandra, thanks for sharing it. I had planned to make the full 88 temple pilgrimage with a Japanese friend when we were both retired. Sadly he committed suicide in 2006.

    • I thought you would like Wren’s Blog. There is so much great information on it isn’t there. I would definitely like to do at least part of that pilgrimage. I went on a trek in Nepal in1993 and we visited many temples, and I then went on to stay at Chenrezig, a Buddhist community north of Brisbane, a wonderfully life enhancing experience. Temples are so often in stunning locations.
      So sorry to hear about your friend, sometimes death seems like the only valid choice, often hard for those left behind.

    • I hope you still make the Shikoku Pilgrimage one day Denis. Your friend sounds like he may have been someone to gain a lot out of it.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing! I wish more people could experience the culture-rich Japan that exists behind the glitter and technology of the big cities. Even after several years living in Japan and countless adventures, the Shikoku Pilgrimage is one of my favourite memories.
