Experience the most beautiful and interesting temples of the Shikoku Pilgrimage in seven days.
There are eighty-eight temples on the Shikoku Pilgrimage, but for most people, visiting them all in a single trip isn’t practical. Besides, not all of the temples are equally appealing.
On this guided tour, you can experience the most beautiful and interesting temples of the Shikoku Pilgrimage in seven days, visiting all four prefectures of the island. You travel by private vehicle seeing the best of the Ohenro, and staying in the main cities of Shikoku. Your accommodation includes temple lodgings, modern hotels, and onsen ryokan for variety and a taste of what the island has to offer. You visit the most attractive and spectacular temples, particularly those associated with Kūkai, founder of the pilgrimage, and Emon Saburō, the first pilgrim.
Shikoku is a big place, and to see everything in eight days calls for busy days. However, you pass through some spectacularly beautiful and varied countryside, and this is sure to be a memorable journey.
This tour can be enjoyed at any time of year. Whatever the season, there’s something special to see, to eat and to drink.

Who is this tour for?
This tour is for those who like to travel with a guide and a small group of like-minded people. The focus is on the temples of the Shikoku Pilgrimage and its legends. Some of the places visited can only be accessed by climbing a lot of steps, so if you want to visit all of the temples and shrines, you’ll need to be reasonably fit. We stay one night at temple accommodation that has ensuite toilets, but only a shared bath, so you need to be OK with getting naked with strangers, or flannel bathing in your room.
