Descripción del sitio
The 88 Temple Pilgrimage is a 1,647-kilometer Buddhist pilgrimage circuit that loops around the entire island of Shikoku through 88 temples. All the temples are said to have been founded by the monk and scholar Kobo Daishi, who founded the Shingon sect of Buddhism. While most modern-day pilgrims (an estimated 100,000 yearly) travel by bus, a minority still set out the old-fashioned way on foot, a journey which takes about 60 days to complete.
