A traditional Buddhist pilgrimage visits 88 temples on Shikoku, retracing the footsteps of the Buddhist saint Kobo Daishi, or “Kukai”, who was born in Kagawa Prefecture and who pursued ascetic training by walking to the sacred places on the island. Today, many people try to complete the journey, regardless of age and gender, with the aim of praying for good health or to achieve a certain goal, or to reflect on their lives.
