Day 34: Route & Timetable

Guide of the pilgrimage route in Kagawa

At breakfast, I asked him again how he was moving so nimbly, and he told me that he was a runner. He was actually very fast runner who had participated in one of the greatest mountain race in France, where he rans up and down mountains. I believe I met him several times during my pilgrimage. He told me that he visited all the sacred temples, including all the Bekkaku sacred temples, so he must have been overwhelmingly fast… wow!

I decided to pay a visit to Koya-san for Orei-mairi, and plan the route accordingly. However, I still couldn’t believe that my pilgrimage would end today…
