  • Over says the pilgrimage in Shikoku hallowed ground at yakuo-ji Temple, the Temple of the good-luck charm and a very famous. Her misfortune Hill 33-man misfortune Hill 42 steps, sixty misfortune Hill 61-, charm, and jade 1 yen on the stairs has become customary 5 yen coin to leave and offering per layer. And when you climb the stairs, without speaking, turn back around so said.

  •  When I was a child, pray for the new year I had. I think in those days without highways, from Takamatsu, 4 hours is needed in one way. Now that the road is better and now testify in about two hours. Improved route 55 from Tokushima city to pleasant run, as well as maintenance of the highway (bypass? ) Would have been. In addition, at yakuo-ji Temple near toll-free sections of the highway have been completed and and has become very useful. Remember, especially free interval was a very dangerous place (car) was as you will. The bow easy but validity is unchanged. Lol. I thought it was not allowed because this time reverse hit pilgrims along the way, other places to visit and revisit.

  • Yakuo-Ji's famous good-luck charm. Main course is Yakushi Nyorai. Shikoku is a base line no. 23 Temple. There will be stairs of the charm (different in men and women) about 100 climb. However, is the view of the sea from the main building on the best. I think I have shukubo also features hot springs.

  • Best place to see Hiwasa Village, Visited in October. I think it would be better if you visit this place in April to enjoy cherry blossoms.
  • Arriving at the parking lot of 2014 / 09 / 7:30 of 12 Awa road the last Temple (Temple of the good-luck charm) 23-King. Yakuo-ji Temple guide map to the exit of the car park was confirmed.  It is truly wide yakuo-JI.  Parking location in shukubo and the hotel, from here walk to the Deva road (33 steps) from her role after Butch Hill (-42) seems to go to temple. When I got to the gentle ascent, already put at 7:00 2 supersedes came ago South Koreans appeared to be a pilgrim woman has arrived and, side by side two familiar Inn bench in Zach was casually placed ago the gentle ascent staircase. ⇒ Japan is a very safe country?! Sight in a foreign country is not: if it were a foreign country without a doubt Funk, will be brought to you!  (--Finish) now, from the main hall of daishido Temple went to Yu Gion Tower building sixty (61 steps) to the end. Yu Gion Tower is the symbol of yakuoji views clearly and at a great distance! Shikoku pilgrimage sacred places establishment this stupa is 1150 year (Koyasan incision 1150's next 40 years) was erected.  So which shows Yu Gion course accounting, is erected in the 9/1963. The Golden 5 Nyorai of the Gohonzon is enshrined in the temple. You can get if you go to the temple worship Buddha in the chancel while climbing spiral go the scenic terrace. View from here, ohama beaches randomly hiwasa River meandering into the S-shaped surround tile roofs of many houses had hiwasa Bay along the Cape extends to the left and right around the two small islets (shimanouchi) is to be held in the hands. Excellent breakfast make you forget to truly hear the passage of time.

  • As previously heard from other Pilgrim stairs does not struggle with it. I saw young Temple and number of people. I seemed to have been very busy. Accommodation and food shops are located in the Shikoku-henro pilgrimage walk felt retreat.
