The Pilgrimage

We're going on a pilgrimage. We just realized that our train passes are valid starting today, so we need to take a long trip to start it off.

Fourteen hours to the island prefecture of Shikoku sounds about right. In Shikoku there is a traditional 88 temple pilgrimage through the countryside and woods that covers 993 miles. Most people do it in 40-60 days on foot, although others wimp out and take the bus.

We don't have time for that, unfortunately, but we're going to head out tonight and walk for a day or two.
