I passed the boundary between 3 of the 4 prefectures in Shikoku today – Ehime, Tokushima and Kagawa. Today I went from Ehime to Kagawa, but temple #66 alone is just barely located in Tokushima prefecture.
From about 3KM from the ‘bus hotel’ I walked along the boundary between Tokushima and Kagawa.
I saw 2 foxes among the scenery just starting to redden from Autumn. When I got closer I discovered they had been eating a dead boar.
Miyoshi City, temple 66 – Unpenji. At a height of 900 meters, it’s the highest point in the pilgrimage.
These statues were on the path out of Unpenji, I wonder just what they mean. I’ll investigate later.
There was a blackboard for walkers to write on at a rest stop provided by Minshuku Aozora. I wrote in the top left. I noticed later, looking at the photo that I got my age wrong… what the heck.
Mitoyo City, temple 67 – Taikouji
I had udon for lunch. Yum!
Kanonji City, temple 68 – Jin’nein and…
Kanonji City, temple 69 – Kanonji. Within the same precinct as #68. It seems I forgot to photo the Daishi hall.
Japanese inn close to #68 & #69 – Fujikawa Ryokan
It seems like it’s run by a family and they were all very cheerful, the food was good too. They also had some manga so I read a bit.
