~SHIKOKU: WALKING AGAINST THE FLOW, 2015~

Japan

Scenes my first 88-Temple Pilgrimage.

These images (not arranged chronologically) are some of my favourites from my late-Summer first circuit of Shikoku on the Henro. I did this one as a very rare gyaku-uchi, a Henro term meaning anti-clockwise, considered a far tougher approach than the standard clockwise circuit. I did find the first week or so quite frustrating at times & got lost a lot. The heat was also a persistent foe but I hope these pictures give an idea of the beauty of Shikoku & the walk.
