The Shikoku Pilgrimage of 88 temples around Shikoku was started by Kūkai (774 to 835), founder of the Shingon sect of Buddhism. The route is about 1,400 km around, and it takes 40 days or more to walk it. Eight of the temples are within Matsuyama City, and they’re visited by local people and visitors from around the world. Pilgrims are fondly called ‘o-henro-san’, and the course itself is called ‘o-henro-michi’. Pilgrims are offered hospitality known as ‘o-settai’, and the temples are called ‘reisho’.
