This is a great site by Discover Tokushima Japan, and some great notes about how to pray at the temples. With corona hopefully taking a back seat to our lives in the foreseeable future, it’s time to start thinking about restarting life, and getting reset in how to move ahead.
The Shikoku Pilgrimage might be “just the ticket” to get your head clear and to re-prioritize your life. I can say for myself, that these past couple years have put a lot of things into perspective. What is important? What is necessary? What is taking up space in my life that needs to be put away, or put in the trash heap.
Pilgrims from all over the world come to Shikoku to experience this pilgrimage. It is long, and it takes time to see everything, or at least visit all 88 temples. It’s a walk that can take time, be done in pieces, and can be traveled by foot, car, bus, train, and bike. Do it your own way, but do take time to figure out what’s important to you.
A walk in a strange, yet incredibly friendly, place might fit that bill perfectly.
