Item Buddhist Temple Pilgrim's Cotton Jacket

The Shikoku Island Pilgrimage or Shikoku Junrei is a pilgrimage associated with the Buddhist monk Kukai. The pilgrim traveled by foot for 30 to 60 days to visit 88 temples in a set order where the Buddhist priest at each temple stamped the jacket with the temple's seal in red. Every year a large numbers of pilgrims, known as o-henro-san, still undertake the arduous journey (however, some less able people go by bus).
