Shikoku Henro 2016


The pilgrimage on the island of Shikoku, called “o-henro”, can be a life-changing experience. It’s an ancient pilgrimage route, connecting 88 Buddhist temples on the island of Shikoku, in Japan.

The route itself is more than 1000 Km long, walked by hundreds of pilgrims every year. It has been referred to as the “Japanese Camino de Santiago”, though it’s very different from it.

Looking back, it certainly was a great adventure for me. I am happy to share it with you, day by day, from the moment I decided to do it until my return in Berlin.

I hope you will enjoy reading them, as much as I enjoyed walking the Shikoku Henro.
