It is hard to believe that it has been a few years since I did the Shikoku 88 Temples pilgrimage. I have decided the time is right to do it for the fourth time. A time to reflect on my next stage of life I am entering (retirement) and to enjoy the beautiful spring sakura (cherry blossoms).
Shikoku in the spring presents it challenges, as I am finding out many places to stay are full already, since it is a popular time of year to do the ohenro pilgrimage.
So, I am looking at trying to decide the places I want to stay ahead of time and see if they are available.
Shikoku here I come. I am ready for a change and to have the opportunity to reflect on things.
