From the 1st to the 7th June my husband and I went to Shikoku as pilgrims. We could visit 36 temples and offer sutras to them.We've already visited 41temples at the end of March, so this time we started from the 24th temple.
We went through Muroto Promontory, Katsura Beach, Ashizuri Promontory and so on. What impressed me most during our pilgrimage was Mikurodo Cave where Odaishi sama was training hard and Venus went into his mouth.
I could understand the reason why he decided to change his name into Kukai.
Some people provided us much money, food, a book etc. as " Osettai". We are deeply grateful to those people and good weather.
