お~HENRO is a centuries old Buddhist pilgrimage inspired by the monk Kōbō Daishi. It's a pilgrimage that takes you on an incredbile 1200km journey to 88 temples dotted around the beautiful island of Shikoku, Japan.
Beginning at Ryōzenji (#1) in Tokushima you head up to some stunning mountain top temples before traversing almost the full length of the Pacific coastline as you make your way through Kochi. From Kochi you head up into Ehime, cross into Kagawa and on to the final temple Ōkuboji (#88).
Regardless of whether your motivation is spiritual or not, it is a journey that will far exceed your expectations. It's a journey I have been fortunate enough to have made twice, first in autumn 2011 and again in spring 2015.
