Shikoku Henro (Pilgrimage to 88 sacred places)

Kobo Daishi, a Buddhist monk also known as Kukai, is said to have traveled on Shikoku Island and set up 88 temples more than 1,200 years ago. Making a pilgrimage to these 88 sacred places is called “ohenro” (sacred journey). It is believed that if you complete your pilgrimage to all the 88 temples, your earthly desires will completely disappear and your dreams will come true. Sixteen of the 88 temples – from the 24th to 39th -- are located in Kochi. The 88 temples are among the first cultural properties to be registered by the Agency for Cultural Affairs on its Japan Heritage list in 2015.
