I have decided to walk the Shikoku88 pilgrimage starting at the end of February 2019. It is a 1200 km route and I am eager to go! I have to prepare myself mentally and physically. So apart from walking lots of km’s, I am also thinking about the motive to do such a pilgrimage. The route has existed for more than 1000 years and has a depth to it worth taking seriously. I know one thing for sure, and that is I will play a piece on shakuhachi at every temple.
