Description of this tour
Shikoku island is well-known for the 88-Temple Pilgrimage. Its origin dates back to over 1200 years. Motives of making a pilgrimage differ depending on the individual. But it could be said that common factor would be to seek peace of mind or spiritual salvation. You can take part in the pilgrimage regardless of your religion.
Ishite-ji Temple is the 51st of the 88 temples. You can see many pilgrims at the temple in white costumes and sedge hats on carrying pilgrim sticks. It is said that Ishite-ji temple cures mind and Dogo Hot Spring cures body.
Please feel the atmosphere of Shikoku pilgrimage.
Hello, I am Yoshihiro Kashiwai. Please call me Yoshi.
I was born in Kochi Prefecture, in Shikoku. Now, I live in Matsuyama City in Ehime Prefecture. I joined NTT (Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation) and later NTT Docomo, INC. I worked for the company in sales for a total of over 40 years and lived in 4 Prefectures (Ehime, Kagawa, Tokushima and Kochi ). I know very well about each prefecture. So, I am a good guide on Shikoku.
After retiring, I gained the guiding license and have been enjoying working as an English guide. I love practicing my English, and am interested in everything about Shikoku including history, culture, nature, etc. I am also a big fan of Shuhei Fujisawa ( a popular Japanese author of historical fiction ).
The purpose of my life is to show overseas guests a wide variety of Shikoku.
I am looking forward to welcoming tourists from abroad to Shikoku.
