The Shikoku Pilgrimage: Day 6 (1/2)

Starting my day with Japanese breakfast.

Hotel is just next to Uwajima Station.

The first temple is far from Hotel while driving, enjoyed a peaceful view.

No. Kanjizaiji (Kanjizai Temple)

My guardian, Senju-kannon (Thousand Armed Avalokiteshwara)

Kaeru (Frog) is a good luck charm in Japan because it sounds same as “Return”.

Happiness Returns, Wealth Returns, Illness Reurns

No. 39 Enkoji (Enko Temple)

Water is good for curing eye illness. 

Tap/rub some water around your eyes.

Further drove down to the most Southern poont of Shikoku island.

This is Shimantogawa (Shimanto River), one of three purest rivers in Japan.

No. 38 Kongo Fukuji (Kongo Happiness Temple)

The garden is beautiful.

This point is the most Southern spot in Shikoku.

This is John Manjiro who is one of people That studied in the USA. 

He became a translator for Japan when Japan is opening isolation in the mid 1850.

I visited more temples today, but I need to go to bed now.

I will continue tomorrow, oyasuminasai


Currently living in Tokyo. I would love to share feelings, food, places and things that I do!!
