The Shikoku Pilgrimage has a history of more than 1,200 years. In addition to the 88 pilgrimage temples, there are also several sacred sites associated with Buddhism and Kūkai, the founder of the pilgrimage.
At these shrines and temples, you can participate in several ceremonies and experiences which are little known, even among Japanese people. On this tour, you visit seven sites in four days to experience these special rituals.
The experiences include ascetic training under a waterfall, staying at a temple lodging, meditation in front of a beautiful Japanese garden, hiking Mt. Tsurugi, and playing traditional shrine instruments dressed in Shintō robes.
The tour visits temples and shrines in Tokushima and Kagawa prefectures.
