I thought I would have to leave Senyu-ji around 8:00 a.m. today because of the priest’s lecture, but I could leave about 30 minutes early.
In my original plan, I’m planning to visit No.60 Yokomine-ji tomorrow, which is located quite high and requires climbing moutain, but it is expected to rain. So I did a little research last night and found out that after visiting No.59 Kokubun-ji, I could take train from Iyo Sakurai station to Iyo Komatsu station, then leave my luggage at Business Ryokan Komatsu, and could visit Yokomine-ji and come back. Then, I can return to Iyo Sakurai station tomorrow, then walk back from there to Iyo Komatsu station so that I don’t miss the pilgrimage henro route.
Considering that it would take 6-7 hours to get to Yokomine-ji and come back, I needed to take the 9:46 train from Iyo Sakurai station, but I found out on the way to Kokubun-ji that I could be in time for this train, so I decided to take this new plan.
