This is the 1200th anniversary of the 88 temples in Shikoku. In this special year, a number of pilgrims called “henro” have visited the Island throughout Japan and overseas. The pilgrimage has recently attracted a number of younger visitors, and we offer a “short pilgrimage” program to allow you to experience part of the pilgrimage. In this program, you walk on a pilgrimage route about 4.6 kilometers between the 81st temple “Shiromine-ji” and 82nd temple “Negoro-ji” located in the mountains of Goshikidai. We offer a transportation service between the Kyukamura SANUKI-GOSHIKIDAI and either temple, and rent necessary costumes and equipment. (Available at half prices if you stay at our Kyukamura SANUKI-GOSHIKIDAI hotel)

Date: Every day (reservation required)
Time required: Approx. 2 hours (*Not guided by staff members)
Rental equipment: 200 yen for suge-gasa (conical Asian hat), 200 yen for kongo-zue (pilgrim’s stick), 600 yen for hakui (white shirt), 400 yen for wagesa (loop stole)
