Spiritual Experience Tours

Discover the four prefectures of Shikoku through our Spiritual Experience Tours.

Overview

Mt. Ishizuchi is the highest mountain on Shikoku, and from ancient times, shamans and spiritual seekers have climbed the mountain in search of visions and enlightenment. Their practice combined elements of Shintō and Buddhism in a syncretic religion called Shugendō. The foundations they laid gradually evolved into the Shikoku Pilgrimage or Henro. We offer a series of exclusive single and multiday tours that give you an opportunity to try first hand the spiritual practices handed down for centuries and Shikoku’s many sacred sites. Whether or not you find enlightenment, these authentic experiences will leave indelible memories.
