¥1,760
This second edition of the guidebook is sturdier and contains information on Bangai-fudasho (Bekkaku-reijyo), which are the 20 temples along the route related to the history of the Shikoku pilgrimage, but are not part of the 88 main temples.

This is the English version of a must-read book by Takeki Miyazaki about the pilgrimage titled Shikoku Henro
Hitori Aruki Dōgyōninin (「四国遍路ひとり歩き同行二人」). It includes information not only on the 88 main temples and places to stay and rest, but also on washrooms, convenience stores, post offices, and public transportation. The aim of the book is to introduce the Shikoku Pilgrimage to the whole world. It helps you understand the history and culture behind the pilgrimage. You can accomplish the entire pilgrimage on foot on the basis of this one book. We recommend you to use it in combination with Visiting the Sacred Sites of Kukai.

The Shikoku pilgrimage includes 88`official` temples and numerous other sacred sites where Kukai (Kobo Daishi) is believed to have trained or have spent time during the 9th Century. If walked, the entire route is about 1,200 kilometers long which allows one to experience the abundant natural surroundings of Shikoku and presents one with numerous opportunities to mix with the local people. This pilgrimage provides the chance to reflect on one's life and to change for the better. Do not worry too much. Just take the first step and as you travel around, you will have time to reflect on yourself and obtain something from this endeavor. To people today, it is being rediscovered as a healing journey.
