Shikoku Pilgrimage Route covers 88 unique Buddhist Temples and follows coastal and mountainous trails

Some of the most scenic temples are mountain top temples that can be reached with difficult climbs - earning the nickname of difficult place

Some are located closer to coastal towns and more easily accessible - you can lodge at small towns and experience the rural life in Japan

Rain or sunshine - each temple offers an atmospheric experience but you will sure find your own favorites, it is sometimes about the beauty of the temple and sometimes about the trail

There are many wonderful accommodation options along the route
