The colour & beauty of Spring in Shikoku on my second 88-Temple Pilgrimage.

This Henro was conventional in direction (clockwise) but rather than starting at temple #1, I began & finished at #51, Ishite-ji, in Matsuyama. I also lengthened my journey by a week or so with a side-trip to follow the Shimanto River (see SHIMANTO, SOURCE TO SEA). Spring was a good choice: chilly nights while camping out but glorious walking temperatures & of course cherry blossoms.
